Do not miss this peek at Stellenbosch,s past,the museum entrance is fairly low key but pay the 30 rand and continue through to see each cottage and hear the stories from well informed guides.
Allow a couple of hours as you wander the grounds and homes,you have access to all rooms and gardens.

This is a great walking tour to learn the history of the area, which is especially beneficial for foreign tourists like us.

4 houses from different eras( 1700 - 1900) with guides in period costume explaing the history of the houses. Well worth a visit.

Lovely museum which allows you to wander around 4 period houses and their gardens. The houses are very different and each tell a story of their owners. their are guides in each of the houses which give you some background but you are also free to wander around at will. Well worth a visit

Would have missed it if our guide in Cape Town hadn't told us about it, because it isn't signposted. The staff very informative.
