The collection of motor cars is the best I have ever seen. It is so vast that the four display halls are constantly changing. I have visited this fabulous collection three or four times and every time it's different. From all period, countries and price levels. From a hall full of Ferrari's to the old MG's of my youth.

My husband is a car enthusiast so no need to say more, but I enjoyed seeing the cars that we had seen on the race circuits eg Le Mans, Kyalami, Monaco etc. Immaculate amazing collection with helpful staff. Also enjoyed the tramcar ride around the estate with views we would not have seen otherwise.

Love this museum so much but wish they would allow people to get into one or two of the cars for pics or just make the tour a little bit more exciting

I was invited by Cape Talk to celebrate Father's Day with my young son at this wonderful venue. I am still not sure why I have never been here before as it is an all inspiring adventure through the different vintages of cars, from the first to the current. The car collection which spans well over 300 are all in... More

The motor museum in Franshhoek is the best I have seen in terms of "automobile evolution". Franshoehhk is in the outskirt of Western Cape en-route Stellenbosch. The evolution of car technology from the early days is just breath taking.

I have no words to describe our experience... It was simply fantastic! The examples are properly restored and kept in good condition. The layout is thought-through. Clean, tidy and friendly staff. The pricey entrance fee is definitely worth it! If you are a motor enthusiast, make sure you set aside sufficient time to enjoy every little detail.

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.
