Cars and motorcycles from every era - and the condition of each one was amazing! Do not have to be a car enthusiast to enjoy.

We went to the Rupert Museum to fill in time on a rainy morning and were quite astounded. ALL the Pierneef paintings (32) that he was commissioned to paint for Jo'burg station were on display. There were many Anton van Wouw sculptures, a couple of dozen Irma Stern paintings and lots of works by other well known South African artists.... More

Like: beautiful premises and real South African orientation in paintings and sculptures. Especially the sculptures of van der Wouw are beautiful.

Too much of one artist. Would have been good to have more variation. Despite that the content allows one to take in the history and the talent.

It was a priviledge not only to see these magnificient works of art, but to see a little of the heart of the collector. My favourites were that famous little bronze statue of the dancing African girl, and of course, the Pierneefs!

Small enough to do with children. Very good exhibition on Pierneef, and other South African artists. Beautiful venue, gardens and sculpture outside.

If you like to see old cars in pristine condition, this is the place for you. An extensive collection housed in 3 separate buildings.

I've lived in the Stellenbosch district for many years but only discovered this treasure last week. The Rupert Museum has the most amazing collection of artworks from our foremost South African artists - Irma Stern, Anton von Wouw, Preller, Pierneef right through to our more recent Batiss and Boonzaaier. Well worth a visit!
