This museum is actually 4 houses that each have their own story and greeter who gives a brief history of the home and the family who lived there. Also had a special exhibit on fires in Stellenbosch that was very interesting. Recommend it highly.

A quartet of historic houses in the centre of Stellenbosch form this fascinating museum. Each one is historically furnished and takes the visitor back over centuries of local history. These are some of the oldest and best-preserved buildings in South Africa, well worth a visit.
