An excellent presentation of the history of the valley with masses of absorbing literature / information in many languages. The annex on the opposite side of the road should not be missed, all part of the initial entrance fee and all staff were most helpful

The R20 entrance fee keeps the gardens well-maintained, so it's worth the price. Pretty to look at and some nice photo opportunities. If you plan well, you can stay for a picnic, but we didn't.

perfect point, perfect set-up… between end of the city and before the mountain… represents the meaning of the region...

We walked here from La Fontaine as a nice walk out of town. It's a nice monument, very well kept and looked after. Quite a few people were visiting whilst we were there, but it wasn't crowded. Worth an hour or so.

The Huguenot Memorial Monument is a beautiful memorial set in an incredible background. Very stunning to see.

The video they have available inside the monument is very informative. The building and garden is worth a visit

Definitely not worth it to pay R50 for two adults and two kids to enter the garden, walk around the monument for 10 minutes and then go out again. And then, when you want to visit the museum, you have to pay the same amount...More

We had a bit of difficulty locating this memorial as we didn't have a map, but soon we could see the tops of the triple arches so after that it was a breeze. I think it is a moving tribute to a very brave group...More

For who knows the Huguenot or descends from French Protestants, this monument is a must, otherwise, to go the museum first for the necessary historical background. By the way: 2 distinct ticket offices.
