We were not expecting a lot from this monument as we approached but were very surprised at how good it is. The views are spectacular in all directions. The monument itself is interesting with water flowing at its base. Pleasant gardens with lots of shady spots to sit and enjoy the views. There is a cafe also. R40 entry fee.

Well worth a little detour , we had the place to ourselves, a stunning monument with lovely gardens and superb views over the Paarl and Franschhoek valley reaching as far as Table mountain in Cape Town.

I hesitated to come here as I thought it was just a touristic attraction but as soon as you get here you feel this place more than simply look at it. It speaks to you in many ways. The view is great from here as well. Good place for a picnic or eat at the nearby restaurant, the food is not bad. Language is culture. Culture is language. They are inseparable and this monument embraces that as well. Well done!

The WORST reception ever; was spoken to in a condescending tone with facial gestures to match upon arrival at the visitor center, before even setting foot on the grounds. Another employee told me after passing through the center that she felt awkward and uncomfortable about the way I was greeted. Such a beautiful monument and breathtaking views, yet the receptionist has tainted the memory.

It is one of my favourite places to take visitors from abroad. It gives an excellent opportunity to tap about the valley of the Huguenots, the surrounding mountains and especially the Afrikaans language.

Interesting to visit. A must see for all South Africans even if you don't speak Afrikaans. Learned a lot from our visit. Have a snack at the shop. You won't be disappointed

If you get close to Paarl, this is a must see. We loved to read the explanation of the various parts of the monuments and recognize it in the architecture.

You can’t go pass Paarl and do not visit this Museum.This Afrikaans language has a beautiful and rich history.For such a young language and how it grow,is a story that you must go and hear it out of one of the well trained guides.This Museum has breathtaking views of the Paarl valley.Enjoy something to eat or drink at the restaurant
