Customer Reviews

I found it to be a very enjoyable experience as it was a trip "down memory lane " for me. It was great to be able to see a large number of the vehicles that were around during my younger years - things like this tend to bring back long forgotten memories and I enjoyed it very much. Thank you. - Edward Bourhill


Great experience. The museums are very well thought out with a great collection of cars. - Elzette Pienaar


Grateful and privileged to be able to view such an amazing and well presented collection of cars. - Rolf Gasser


Beautiful as usual - David Malcolm


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
