2016 entry fees at Amafa Sites

on .

Amafa has kept its entry fee rates unchanged for over two years. Given that its just been handed a 15% cut to our budget by the Provincial Treasury, and have been instructed by the Provincial parliament to find ways of increasing non-grant revenue, the Amafa Exco has reluctantly approved the following increases. Entry for adults to our main centres increases from R30.00 to R35.00 (7.5% p/a over the two years). Pensioners and students now pay R25.00. Children under 12 pay R20.00. Scholars who are part of eductational groups now pay R5.00. Entry remains free to Amafa sites on Museum's Day and Heritage Day. In order to allow forward planning, these increases will be implemented as of 1 July 2016. Amafa has to date tried to stay away from a fee system that discriminates on the basis of citizenship
