Customer Reviews

I had read about the museum in several English car magazines and made a special trip from Cape Town to see it. I was not disappointed. The four buildings and the cars inside were immaculately maintained and attractively displayed, and the cars themselves were well chosen. The placards identifying the cars and their significance were helpful, too. My only suggestion would be to produce a coffee-table-sized catalog of the complete collection. - Paul Falon

Wonderful, enjoyed by the whole party, Thank you - Jennifer Coward

What great find in South Africa. They qualify and the presentation was outstanding. - Bobby Jones

Having visited the Franschhoek Motor Museum several times during our trips to South Africa, it remains a wonderful experience and there’s always different vehicles to see due to the rotation of the collection. Whilst the collection if vehicles is outstanding, how they are displayed, the pristine way the are maintained and the overall position and setting on the estate make for a fantastic trip. The staff at the museum are helpful and courteous. We were also fortunate to see the rotation of some vehicles when it was a pleasure to watch the care and expertise shown by the staff team in doing so. We also went on the Vintage Car ride around the estate, which was the first time on our visits to the museum. This was excellent and helped bring the museum alive! An overall excellent visit, as ever. - Karen Jones

Was lost for words at the beauty of the venue - the surroundings are beautiful, tidy, clean and welcoming. Staff were friendly and most helpful. Spent over 4 hours making our way through the garages that housed the vehicles. Every vehicle was in pristine condition, as was each garage. Husband was in his element - being a petrolhead - the best Christmas gift for him. Enjoyed a light meal at the restaurant on the premises - most enjoyable. All in all a good experience and wonderful day out. - Dave &Lynda Brown
