Nice little museum showing the history of the Volkswagen group in South Africa. Not only for Volkswagen enthusiasts, but for everyone who is interested in the nearer history of South Africa. Take at least two hours to explore and enjoy the exhibition

We came here you do the factory tour, but it has recently (i.e as of July 31 2017) been suspended until 2018 due to construction works inside the factory. We have not gone into the museum.

The factory tour was most interesting and a must do activity if in the region. The guide will not keep you awake with the way he talks, but what you see is impressive. The actual pavilion/museum is also very interesting and we loved it.
