This is definitely a must see while in Franschoek. It's located on the Ormarins Winery grounds and is a pristine installation with over 100 gorgeous vintage cars. Well worth a stop.

I don't care a whit about cars, but this was a really fun and fascinating visit. It was as much a history lesson as it is a car museum. And the cars themselves are works of art.

There are so many beautiful cars here. The value must be massive. I am not a car enthusiast, but it was quite staggering to see such beautifully kept and restored old vehicles.

A nice way to be indoors in the blistering Franschhoek heat! The cars are very nice to look at (even if you aren't a car enthusiast) and was something to do for an hour!

Really a must in Franschhoek if you even have the slightest interest in cars. There are four large purpose-built buildings which house about 20 cars each. They are built in the style of wine warehouses to fit in beautifully with the setting. If you have the opportunity, I would highly recommend the guided tour. Erica was fantastic. She showed us...
