Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is actually three places rolled into one – a museum, then another museum across the road and then the Huguenot Memorial, which is only accessible once you have been through the museum and bought your 100 ZAR ticket.

The content of the museum is interesting and well laid out. Although I had covered aspects of the religious persecution of the Huguenots in history, the layout and accompanying commentary made me realise just how awfully persecuted these people were, which is why the emigrated around the world, some coming to Franshoek.

Given the wider conflicts in the world. It was salutary to think of the dreadful experiences these early pioneers suffered.

A little more enthusiasm and interactivity from staff working over the road in the second museum would have enhanced the experience.

Such a truly grand memorial and honourable recognition to the Huguenot's, who came and saw the potential of this incredible land/valley.
Grand history, beautiful buildings, gardens and museum.

This is a nice thing to visit after the museum in order to be able to understand the monument who in itself is beautiful in its own way

Easy to find at the end of the main street, this is well worth a look. You can see it easily from the road and don’t have to go through the museum.

Connected to the museum, we just loved this memorial. The statue tells an amazing story, which is just as true today. In addition the gardens are absolutely amazing, especially in the Spring and Summertime.

Well run and interesting exhibits. I bought a book about the Huguenots in the Cape which I have been wanting for some time. Well worth a visit

They obviously have invested a lot into improvements here. It used to be not much to look at, but now it's an extensive history line of the hugenots, some south african memories too and even a parfume bottle exibition

The Monument is next to the museum. The museum is interesting and the monument is just worth a short look.

You must not miss this as it's part of the history of Franschhoek. Good thing is that it is very easy to find at the top of the street.
