The Motor Museum has much more than just classic cars. There were old bicycles, cars that never went to production and also new cars like cars you've seen on the race track. Great place for people who appreciate cars!

An unexpected attraction in this area renowned for it's wineries. The high quality & variety of vehicles on display was amazing and worthy of a higher admission charge.

This is one of the biggest selections of pristine vintage cars I have seen in South Africa. The showrooms are immaculate and is set on a tranquil farm. This is a must see when visiting the area, especially if you love cars.

Affordable and insightful, 2 hours well spent. Not anticipating much more that seeing a few cars, I got enveloped in the information provided and the spectacle presented. Not told was the fact that all of the vehicles are regularly driven and rotated (they only show 25% of the stock on hand).

As a non car enthusiast I still enjoyed looking at the history of different vehicles from the early 1900's to modern racing models. All of the cars were immaculately presented with only some cars showing signs of wear due to their age and/or condition when acquired. Good variety of makes and models with each car having an accompanying placard with... More

This is a very pleasant stop for those who are love cars. The museum admission fee is so reasonable and one can use his own transport to visit. It has four halls where you you can see cars of different make and age with all the specifications.
