“Old Stellenbosch”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

A great museum that takes you back in time through the various ages of Stellenbosch with guides at the various houses. I loved the smells and atmosphere of all the different dwellings and marvelled at the old wooden beams of Yellowwood and Stinkwood. Furniture also very interesting!

“worth seeing if you are in town”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was a good place to get a feel for the history of Stellenbosch. The people who worked at each stop were informative, but more context would have been useful.

“An interesting insight into the old houses”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We enjoyed our trip around the museum, you visit a few different houses around the town and there is person in each house that can tell you some of its history. The first house was our favourite as it was the oldest and had some interesting things in there and the lady was very informative. It wasnt at all expensive and was a good way to see some of the old houses.
