“Franschhoek Motor Museum”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

It's quaint and set in beautiful and well kept surroundings. You drive up a long country lane next to a paddock with beautiful horses. The parking area is filled with lovely shaded trees and is very well kept. The little restaurant adjacent to the Museum is quirky and filled with motor memorabilia. The food is good as is the service. The museum is worthwhile and I loved the old wine barn that it is kept in. Interesting and unexpected

“Cars, cars and more cars.”
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”
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.
