Our history

Well run and interesting exhibits. I bought a book about the Huguenots in the Cape which I have been wanting for some time. Well worth a visit

Improved a lot
Aug 2020 • Family
They obviously have invested a lot into improvements here. It used to be not much to look at, but now it's an extensive history line of the hugenots, some south african memories too and even a parfume bottle exibition

Have a short look after the Museum
Feb 2020
The Monument is next to the museum. The museum is interesting and the monument is just worth a short look.

A Must
Feb 2020
You must not miss this as it's part of the history of Franschhoek. Good thing is that it is very easy to find at the top of the street.

Quiet considering it's at one end of the town. Nice looking monument with mountains behind. Easy parking nearby

Gates closed
Jan 2020 • Solo
I would have liked to have walked up close to the monument, but despite it being an hour after the opening time on the notice board by the gates, both entrances were firmly padlocked and there was nobody around. Disappointing, but you can still appreciate it from a distance. It’s an impressive structure set against a majestic backdrop of the mountains surrounding Franschhoek.

A bit untidy place
Dec 2019
Untidy with litter around the Monument and in the pool. A professional gardener is needed.
No places to sit and enjoy.

Monument closed on a Sunday
Aug 2019
We could not access this iconic monument of Franschoek on a Sunday. Very dissapointing as all access gates were closed. A note on the main gate advised to fetch a key at the church across the road.
