The Franschhoek Motor Museum

The Franschhoek Motor Museum – Even if you aren’t a petrolhead, it’s hard not to be impressed by the magnificent collection of vintage cars, motorcycles, bicycles and auto memorabilia on display – all in mint condition, and all with a bit of their history included.

With more than 100 years of motoring history housed here, the categories include:

Antique, Veteran, Vintage, Post-vintage, Post 1945 and Post 1960. The four exhibition halls include noteworthy cars, such as the Ford Model T, Alfa Romeo Spider, Bugatti Type 23, Buick Marquette and Mercedes-Benz W21. Other car marques include Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin, among many more, even from recent years.

The specific automobiles selected for display are alternated to keep things interesting, making return visits a must.

Insider tip Go for a chauffeured vintage car ride on the L’Ormarins Estate (for R80 per person). Even better, if you book 2 – 3 days in advance, you will be emailed a selection of motors from which to choose your ride!
Don’t miss the opportunity to hop on a free tram and do a wine-tasting on the neighbouring Antonij Rupert Wyne farm, while you’re there.
