The Franschhoek wine valley, one of the finest wine valleys in the world and here because of the French Huguenots. Fascinating memorial museum, the full history and a full afternoon to explore.
Entrance fee paid at the main museum and then allows entrance to the memorial.
Beautiful day, beautiful well kept place, beautiful history and now for all to enjoy.

A small but very informative museum that takes us back to where it all went sour for the huguenots and how they ended up in South Africa. Extremely dark chapter in french history for sure

A very informative museum - well thought out and well presented.
It is surprising how as few as 300 initial French Huguenots can have had such an impact on South Africa.
It was definitely worthwhile investing time to understand this particular part of history.

The ticket included the perfume museum, the monument, the museum and also the monument information building. This was a lot more interesting than expected and was very reasonably priced.

We learned about the Huguenots but also so much about other refugees throughout history. It’s really well done and thought provoking.

Beautiful to visit if they are open, as they are most of the time closed when we go there with guests.

Enjoyable and informative visit. The museum guides, Krispin and Martina (apologies for any misspellings), answered my numerous questions with lots of detail. Krispin is clearly a very passionate historian! Highly recommended.

We spent quite a lot of time in the museum as there was so much interesting history and facts about the Huguenots. We loved the various origins of the families from the various countries in Europe and the famous people who have descended from the Huguenots. Who would have thought to find Roger Federer's mother in such a museum.. An absolute must visit when in Fransschoek.

After going through the whole Huguenot Memorial Museum experience we realized again where we and everything came from in South Africa. We were pleasantly surprised with the service and the whole experience.

Please support this institution as they are keeping the history alive! The setting is rich with history and the environment is kept in pristine condition.
