I am not 100% into cars, however this collection is amazing. Housed in 4 buildings the mind boggles it its value. Well worth a stop. If you are into your cars you will be able to kill some time here. We used it as a variation from just going to vineyards but still managed to stay for a good while.

A must for men but also the ladies will like it. The museum is located in a beautiful garden with many flowers. The buildings are very clean and the cars are very well maintained

My Husband loves cars and bikes (only 1 bike) and wanted to visit this museum. Four massive buildings with some fantastic cars . Even I was impressed as I walked around. Its so Professionally done and the cars are so well presented. I would suggest even if your not a great fan its worth a visit.

Wow! I haven't seen my husband so excited for a long time. Quite rightly so. Even I, who normally show little interest in cars, found this attraction to my liking. Fantastic location in which to showcase the beautiful selection of cars and bikes. Not to be missed.

I am not the greatest of motor enthusiasts, but we recently visited, as my 13 year old son is. And he was in heaven. It is understood that the around 300 cars on display in four adjoining museums are not the only ones in the collection. Apparently the entire collection changes every three months. Every car is in absolutely impeccable... More

Having often passed the entrance en route to/from Franschhoek, we decide to stop and visit the museum - we were not disappointed and thoroughly recommend a visit. The cars are superb - classic styling and wonderfully restored / maintained. Also, a great collection of pedal cycles (from Penny Farthings to Chopper - a classic from my youth in the 70's!)...

A real treat to seek here machines new and old in pristine condition and showcased in the Franshhoek valley. Glass of wine and a sandwich couldn't be nicer!

Never seen such an amazing set of vintage and not so vintage vehicles in all my life. Jaw was on the floor. Camera was popping overtime. Go there - the best R60 I have spent for a long time. And the setting is beautiful.

Great location Beautiful classic cars - particularly likes the Mercedes Ponton 120. A few motorcycles and bikes to look at dating back through the ages. Excellent coffee/lunch cafe.
