“Cars, cars and more cars.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

The collection of motor cars is the best I have ever seen. It is so vast that the four display halls are constantly changing. I have visited this fabulous collection three or four times and every time it's different. From all period, countries and price levels. From a hall full of Ferrari's to the old MG's of my youth.

“Family visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

My husband is a car enthusiast so no need to say more, but I enjoyed seeing the cars that we had seen on the race circuits eg Le Mans, Kyalami, Monaco etc. Immaculate amazing collection with helpful staff. Also enjoyed the tramcar ride around the estate with views we would not have seen otherwise.

Love this museum so much but wish they would allow people to get into one or two of the cars for pics or just make the tour a little bit more exciting

“What a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I was invited by Cape Talk to celebrate Father's Day with my young son at this wonderful venue. I am still not sure why I have never been here before as it is an all inspiring adventure through the different vintages of cars, from the first to the current.

The car collection which spans well over 300 are all in excellent conditions and are housed in 4 different halls all within walking distance of each other. There are very knowledgeable staff on had to answer any questions you may have about the cars on display. If I remember the statistics correctly, 80% of the cars are still drivable and whilst we were there a number of them were been drive around the oval which is situated in the center of the viewing halls. One is able to get very close to the various cars to see the detail and styling of the different era. You cannot do the tour justice in less than half a day.
