Spent a couple of peaceful hours here on a rainy morning in march. Beautiful collection, exceptional irma stern pieces, very reasonable entrance fee and good safe parking. An added bonus were the pernief panels on temporary loan.

The Rupert has a nice collection of South African art on display, located near downtown Stellenbosch. The collection is relatively small and can be seen in about an hour. Inexpensive admission fees. Worth a visit.

World class exhibit of one of the finest classic car collections in the world. On arrival we hopped onto a tram / car which gave us a scenic tour across the farms.

Sizeable displays of several 20th Century South African artists including Irma Stern and Anton van Mouw. A short walk from the centre of Stellenbosch and well worth a visit.

Small gallery with a variety of different styles. Some Irma Stern paintings and many others of her era. Well worth the visit as peaceful and not crowded.

I thought Far Niente in Napa had a good car collection, but this place blows it away. Four barns full of the most fantastic vintage car collection.
