Great to see where my Heritage started. Beautiful ground and so peaceful. Museum staff not really friendly though.

South Africa is melting pot of cultures, we have been through the bad and are on a positive trajectory for the future, i think that its time that we give an alround review of what transipered when the Huguenots arrived in the Cape, it was not all peaceful and amicable trade of land, i just think the video shown should also represent what actually happened vs painting the Huguenots as persecuted and disposed of their religon/culture etc and having arrived in South Africa peacefully trading with the locals.

Very informative with plenty history of the Huguenots. Here the life of the Huguenots at the Cape of Good Hope is illustrated - it contains a large variety of furniture, bibles, kitchen utensils etc.
The building the museum is housed was in the 18th century the home of Baron Willem Ferdinand van Reede van Oudsthoorn.

After a visit to this museum we were enriched by all that we learned and saw. It's a small museum and definitely worth the 20-30 minutes to learn more about his group of pilgrims that have to much to do with the South African wine region
