my husband will visit this place every time we visit Cape Town if he could. I love how you can go through the museum at your own pace and marvel at the wonderful classics on display.

This purpose built museum was quite difficult to find but we are so pleased we made the effort to look for it. One doesn't need long ( an hour is enough) to go through the 3 halls and it is an excellent stop before or after going to the Wine Estates of either or both of Stellenbosch and Franschoek .... More

If you like cars this is a must see! The display is fantastic and you will see form old to new. The collection is much bigger than what is on display and therefore the cars on display change regularly. You can also do some wine tasting whilst you visit the museum.

Its worth going if you have some time on your hands. It is mostly tapestries and art by Pierneef, a well known South African artist.

Four large hangers full of beautifully kept cars to drool over. From early motors to state-of-the-art supercars all lovingly displayed in atmospheric surroundings. There are many more cars in storage so exhibits are rotated in case you go back. And you will!

A really good selection of art, with some dedicated sections for influential South African artists such as Pierneef, Irma Stern etc.

So much more to this art museum than we expected but the absolute highlight is the collection of paintings done for the Johannesburg central station by Pierneef. They catch the colours and sites of SA so well, we've now been to them twice, bought the tiny book and will return whenever we can. Pierneef

this attraction is hidden away down the dorp street link between the r44 and r301. its worth going to see. housed in a modern, purpose built building the collection is absolutely fabulous - with sculptures ranging from rodin s the kiss - just sitting there in open view - to more modern but just as interesting modern south african work....

The Pierneef paintings which used to be in the Johannesburg Train Station are being housed here - and are a real treat. There are also multiple exceptional Anton van Wouw sculptures and a large collection of Irma Stern paintings.
