This place is a must for even the non car lovers. It's so peaceful, and the surroundings are filled with mountains. The cars in the museum are one collection that is a must to see. They even have a wine tasting section.

My husband and a friend visited this museum yesterday. He is a F1 enthusiast and the highlight was seeing Jody Sceckter's F1 car which he last saw being driven in a F1 race!

I was not expecting to find such a special collection of old-timers in a small place like Franschhoek, but it is probably the best car-museum I have visited until now. It is worth a visit, even if you are not too interested in cars.

A large collection of rare cars spread over four barns and a restaurant building. Expect to see rare Alfa Romeos, Mercedes-Benz' and Fords. Entrance is free for men on Father's Day.

My wife has no interest in cars whatsoever, but she was very happy to spend a couple of ours here. It is extremely well laid out, and every single exhibit is in mint condition. The best collection and cross section of cars I have ever seen.
