“Staggering”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

4 sheds, about 80 cars on display from a collection of over 200 I believe. Makes a lovely quick detour from the usual attractions of the Cape and really is a cracking collection of cars. We had the place to ourselves in March and would recommend the place for the minimally interested to the dedicated petrolhead...

“What a gem, needs better advertising to tourists”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Someone said to us, "there is a car museum near here, we should go look".

Add this to your to do list. This was fabulous. My husband loves cars, but my children (5 & 2) and I also had a great time. There is an excellent collection of cars and even penny farthing bicycles. This private collector has 80 cars on display. Each car is only on display for 6 months and then is rotated with other cars. It takes 2 years before the same car comes on display again. There are full time mechanics keeping every car in working order.

When you see the amazing quality of cars in the collection, you understand why there is a security guard. Most wineries in the region also have a security guard house at the entrance of the property.

This was great and an undiscovered gem. There is an onsite cafe for refreshments and light meals. We would recommend this venue to anyone travelling in Franschoek.
