The William Humphreys Art Gallery opened in 1952 was named after its principal benefactor, William Benbow Humphreys and is located in Kimberley’s Civic Centre. It is consider one of South Africa’s finest art museums. The art collection contains 16th and 17th century Dutch and Flemish Old Masters, French and British paintings, antique furniture and South African works of art; several items were donated by William Humphreys.

Its activities include temporary exhibitions, art workshops mainly for children, development stimulation classes for pre-school children, craft workshops for unemployed women, lectures, video shows and concerts.

There is also a successful outreach programme in which graphic exhibitions are taken into the small towns of the Northern Cape Province where students are exposed to world of art. The library is also used by students studying art.
