The museum also holds works of famed sculptor El Anatsui of Ghana. The museum is not for profit and it will open free for African passport holders at certain times every week. In a statement, Jochen Zeitz said, “Africans need to come on board. It’s not my museum or the Waterfront’s – it’s for Africa.”
