The Village Museum presently comprises four houses, in their original location, and almost neighbours, so walking around them is easy. The houses date from approximately 1709 to 1850 and show the furnishings and style of the period. A guide in each house, dressed in the appropriate costume of the time, gave a talk on the restoration, suggesting items of interest in various rooms, and about the type of family who lived there. The gardens of each house have been planted with shrubs, trees and herbs that were popular during each period, so it is easy to feel you have been transported to the era. Stellenbosch is a beautiful town, and the Village Museum is worth making part of your tour.
