EP Bauman Johannesburg - museum will be open for public viewing until 30 May 2015
E.P. Baumann Primary commemorates International Museum Day (18 May 2015) with
its own Museum documenting 80 years in existence.
The rich, progressive history of E.P. Baumann Primary since its inception in 1934 has been well
documented and preserved. This fascinating history was uncovered and displayed in our very
own museum for our 80th Birthday Festival. On the day of the Festival, 21 March 2015, past
learners and staff members from as early as the 1930s came in droves to the school. They met
up with fellow peers and took a great interest and enjoyment in the Museum. As a result, there
was a request from members of the Gauteng Department of Education and the general public
to not dismantle the museum after the Festival.
The museum has been open for public viewing every Saturday morning since 9 May 2015 and
will remain open until 30 May 2015. This open viewing also coincides with International
Museum Day, 18 May 2015. To commemorate the day, the school will be giving tours to its
current learners over the course of two days (18 May/19 May).
We welcome your organisation, as part of a coverage on International Museum Day, to come
and view our remarkable museum which documents a school of diversity which has made a
significant impact on many lives. A promotional video is also available on request.
