What an amazing museum, 80 cars on display out of 300 and rotated every six months, my husband was like a kid in a sweet shop, a must when visiting Franschhoek.

The weather was not great so ducking between museum buildings was a good way to spend the morning. The collection is top class, haven't seen better anywhere.

It is an amazing display. They swap the cars every 6 months, because they can not display all the cars at once. Worth going more than once
