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.
