When you arrive there, a very friendly lady invites you to see the Old Harbour Museum.
It looks like a backyard hangar where some people just place various things in there, for in case, use it one day. Due a lack of maintenance most attractions do not work. Is there a manager that is interested and that cares?
To be frank it’s a joke, it’s definitely not a museum.
I feel sorry for the lady at the entrance that need that job but cannot make changes. The ticket is valid for both so called museums, the Old Harbour and Whale House.

Whilst this was nothing special, i feel that we all have to start somewhere. The lady who showed us round was enthusiastic and helpful. Go, if only to support this local endeavour

Not too much to see but very quirky and nice local feel. The ticket for this museum also provides entry to the Whale House Museum so worth doing both if you're in Hermanus as they're not far apart.
