This is a 5-star town that could be a Nr. 1 destination for every local and international tourist if more planning and interest is visible from the local authority. On driving through to Tulbagh with the objective of visiting a specific museum we were referred to the Info/Tourist office 'down the road' to purchase tickets? I have no objection to paying, but with time challenging another appointment in town, we had to give it a miss. It seemed we possibly would have been the only visitors to the museum that day and it closed at 13h00 - about the time the town was suddenly full of tourists looking to view the now closed museums. Some visible law-enforces in the history old town will certainly add value. Sad to see such potential in a job-hungry town not being released due to lack of services and a creative new approach to unleash its potential.

Buy tickets for the 4 museums at the Earthquake Museum at the start of the road.
They happily took our cash to wonder the street and visit the 4 museums. Only 2 were actually open (Earthquake Museum and the church).
Info boards along the route were very helpful.
Happily wondered up enjoying the well restored architecture.
Everything seemed a little tired and in need of a bit of TLC though.

We paid for entrance to all 4 of the museums/points of interest in the street, however they neglected to inform us that only 2 of the 4 museums were open. So couldn't see much, what a let down.

The town is beautiful and the restored Church Street must be one of the most beautiful streets in South Africa, but we were very disappointed that all the museums were closed on the Saturday afternoon. This is not a good advertisement for the town as a weekend getaway as this is one of the main tourist attractions and you expect to be able to visit them
