“Cool Cemetery!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I did not experience the museum but the centuries-old cemetery is very cool to walk through and open to the public. Lots of good photos set against the mountains and valley scenery.

“Franschhoek must-see for tourists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

If you are interested in the history of the French Huguenots, and in turn the history of South Africa, then the Huguenot Memorial Monument is a definite must-see while you're in Franschhoek. It is at the top of Huguenot Road (one of the main roads of Franschhoek), you definitely can't miss it. Next door is the museum, which further explains the historical significance of the Huguenots and of Franschhoek.

A small entrance fee is charged, at the time of our visit it was R 10.00 per person.

“Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

It's a nice monument and you can't miss it, it's at the end of the main street. If you turn left, you will end up on the pass overlooking the town, which is very nice.
