Customer Reviews

I can only compliment the display. I personally would have liked to have seen a Land Rover Series vehicle (it is iconic) and a Lotus Esprit for the impact made in the Bond Films. I accept that had these two cars been on display, no doubt I would have found justification for another one or two (Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary perhaps), making it impossible for any collection to be complete! Staff and premises were immaculate and overall a top experience. - Roger Buck


A very well organised and presented museum with the descriptions and details of every vehicle displayed - Roel Snijder


The museum, given its surroundings, the immaculately manicured grounds and the helpful and courteous staff, is a unique experience, whether you are an enthusiast or not. - Keith Mears


We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to your Motor Museum. We found the cars in beautiful condition and the grounds and buildings are kept in a superb condition. The staff are all very friendly and we will definitely recommend a visit to the Franschhoek Motor Museum to anybody who is interested in cars (and even those who are not particularly interested in cars!) - Bruce Altria


We came on New Year's Day, a hot summer day, greeted by full compliment of friendly staff who were friendly, helpful, and attentive. As to the cars: A gorgeous collection a cars, beautifully curated, the museum is treat for anyone, not just car enthusiasts! The age span gives a look into the past with original Model T Fords, for others a walk down memory lane - seeing the cars that were on the road while growing up in the 50's, 60's, 70's. Modern Ferrari's, shoulder-to-shoulder with Vintage Pennie-farthings gives a unique sense of how far motoring has come! - Gareth van der Westhuizen
