“Superb setting and nicely laid out museum...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

One of the best motor museums I have been to.

The cars are nicely laid out meaning they haven't tried to cram to much in. Very beautiful views around the museum and the whole place is spotlessly clean.

Very enjoyable visit.

“Beautiful setting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I had planned this as a must see in our recent trip to Cape Town. Certainly not disappointed, the exotica were beautiful displayed, including a static display of John Love's silver wear, helmet and a steering wheel off a crashed F1.
I was told by one of the officials that there are another 200 odd vehicles stored not too far away.....could have spent the rest of the day looking at them as well.

The most beautiful setting that has 4 buildings full of amazing cars. It has to be 'a MUST see' on visits to Franschhoek.
