Beautifully restored and displayed examples of different eras, from the very old to the new and very fast. Really enjoyed it!

There are some amazing cars to see here. The museum is slightly expensive to get in, at R60, especially if you're not a car fanatic, but they lay out and the collection are pretty amazing.

One of the best motor museums I have been to. The cars are nicely laid out meaning they haven't tried to cram to much in. Very beautiful views around the museum and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Very enjoyable visit.

I had planned this as a must see in our recent trip to Cape Town. Certainly not disappointed, the exotica were beautiful displayed, including a static display of John Love's silver wear, helmet and a steering wheel off a crashed F1. I was told by one of the officials that there are another 200 odd vehicles stored not too far... More

It was an expensive visit that only had a bunch of cars to look at. Yes I know its a motor museum, but it could have had a whole bunch of other activities centered around cars to enjoy. A race car track? Bumper cars for the kids? Rides on a vintage car? Themed coffee shop?.... I suppose it was interesting... More

We are not great car enthusiasts but this was a wonderful visit. Just the chance to drive onto the lovely grounds and walk around a bit was worth the modes price of admission. The cars a fascinating. Mostly high end and racing oriented but also Model T's and Volkswagen Beatles. The presentation is magnificent and most of the cars are... More
