Please note: In attempt to help curb the spread of Covid-19, reading rooms at the Western Cape Archives are closed to the public until further notice. Researchers may still make telephonic or email requests during this time.
Mondays to Fridays: 08:00 to 16:00
Except Thursdays: 08:00 to 19:00 (reading room)
First Saturday of each month: 9:00 to 13:00 (reading room)
The Western Cape Archives and Records Service aims to reach members of the public who do not know about the archives' existence and functions by running a number of public programmes. These feature open days, presentations and lectures on selected topics to learners, students and members of the public. Guided tours - including the stack rooms, which are normally not accessible to the public - are also conducted.
