The William Humphreys Art Gallery, situated in Kimberley's Civic Centre, is considered one of the finest art museums in South Africa and owes much of its reputation to its principle benefactor William Benbow Humphreys (1889- 1965). William Humphreys was an avid collector of European and British paintings, furniture and objects d'art. His collection was housed at his home in Carrington Road, Kimberley, where he had an art gallery.
