This small museum is in the main road as you enter Graaff Reinet , heading towards the big NG Church. Cost is R30pp & there are some really old cars in very good condition & most are for sale as well

Across the road is another part of the museum which is not fully operational anymore , the restaurant has closed down. It brought back some memories with the look & feel of the old petrol/gas stations , some old tools , petrol pumps , workshop etc

It's worth a short visit

We were blown away by the two museums on opposite sides of the road. So much love and care has gone into this privately owned museum. On the one side are a collection of beautifully kept cars and motorcycles and on the opposite side is a little shop, some more cars, a pub, a vintage caravan that sells milkshakes, a vintage workshop and garage.

Staff were very friendly and the coffee was excellent.

We visited Graaff Reinet over the weekend and we were quite surprised that this attraction was not on Trip Adviser yet. The Village is a trip through history as well as the Museum opposite the Road. You can buy local products, have e look at old cars which are still working, and even buy old motorbikes. A must to visit if you going to this town.

What a lovely spot! A wide collection of vehicles - all in immaculate condition and beautifully displayed. The staff were really friendly and happy to answer all our questions about the vehicles. Recommend stopping past!

In the middle of town is The Recollection Museum. Of course - hubby couldn't resist it.
Great collection of cars to see.
