“Saw some Grand Auto's”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

It was the fist time I had every seen a Cord auto made in America the same year I was born. And I had to go to SA to see it. They should start making that car again as a retro, it was a great looking car.

“Sooo. Interesting”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Went with hubby and thought I'd be bored. What an amazing collection of cars and bikes! Could not help but admire the cars polished, sparking and of a bygone era. Wow, what a collection. An outing not to be missed.

“Motor Enthusiast Wonderland”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

If you love cars, you'll love this auto museum, which has a wide selection of vintage, exotic, and racing cars. There are also old bicycles, motorcycles, and memorabilia. The grounds and buildings are spectacular as well.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I doubt if there is a better collection of vintage cars anywhere in the world. Fascinating even if you are not a petrolhead. Well worth a visit.

“Not just a rainy day activity”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We went to the motor museum, as it was a very rainy day in Franshhoek. Even though I have been to Franschhoek several times, I have never been here before.
I urge you not to save it for a rainy day. There are 4 separate 'sheds' all packed with cars from every era. Not something you expect to find in a South Africa.
My favourite was the green Aston Martin and the Ferrari Spider. If you like cars this is a must, if you only having a passing interest in cars, you will still find it very interesting
There's also a cafe and you can also do a wine tasting
