The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) logged more than 5 000 visitors a day over the long weekend.
Architect and design expert Henry Abosi says it's too soon to say whether the Zeitz MOCAA will perpetuate segregation in the Mother City.
Abosi explains that the nine-storey cultural mecca has the potential to be an inclusive space or it could further marginalise some Capetonians
He says the success of the mega museum cannot be judged by its opening weekend alone.
He recently called into question the accessibility and relevance of the art space for all races and cultures.

Abosi says the contents of artwork exhibited in the museum will be a vital instrument to empower local creative voices.
