The Western Cape Archives and Records Service aims to reach members of the public who do not know about the archives’ existence and functions by running a number of public programmes. These feature open days, presentations and lectures on selected topics to scholars, students and members of the public.

Guided tours – including the strong rooms, which are normally not accessible to the public – are also conducted. There are exhibits on show in the reception hall and conference room.
