    Just visited here with my husband. Absolutely brilliant room full of bikes - ranging from never even having been fired up to being manufactured in the early 1950s.
    The guys were lovely, friendly and knowledgeable.
    Would definitely recommend stopping by here on your trip to Knysna

    We loved the relaxed vibe at this market, no hassle from stall holders to buy their wares, just people happy to chat about their craft. The couple of hours we spent here went way to quickly. A brilliant place to buy gifts.

    It was a short visit, far too short, to the Gallery, I will do the tour in July on my return to Knysna.

    Wow, what vibrant colours, what a variety. The paintings reflect an ideal of Africa, a simple Africa, a strong and vigorous Africa, a loving Africa.

    In the back corner I was gobsmacked. Piles of tinned food, packets of flour, rice and maize meal? Peggy's support a soup kitchen, a creche. WOW, this lady and her team really share the love!!!

    I cannot recommend a visit to this gallery highly enough.

    We have eaten here a few times before, and food is very nice. We always looked at the pizza section eagerly, then recently after a walk with the doggies, decided to try the pizzas.
    Well, they are of the best in Knysna, you know when each bite tastes fantastic, and you cannot wait for the next, they were that good and we didnt have to add anything to enhance the flavour!!
    Another bonus is that Pizzas 🍕 in Knysna are expensive, but not these Pizzas.
    We are spreading the word. Go to the Gallery pizzas and relish the taste!!
    Some constructive improvements would be the waiter who greets, takes an order, then does not return to check again on anything??

    Interesting building and information. We started with a guide but we wanted to read everything so left the guide after about 15 minutes ( she was very good). There is a small cafe within the building too.

    Its always nice to visit historical places of interest when we travel as a family.
    Not only does it enrich and teach to protect and to preserve but shows us where we have come from.
    The Museum has been gifted from the friends of Knysna to the municipality I hope they understand how important this is to protect this heritage.

    Our visits exceeded our expectations by a long chalk. We experienced an unforgettable 3 hour multimedia craft course with excellent guidance from Claire of Storm Pebbles. We also met artist Helena owner of Art on Queen who was running a fun ‘ Sip and Paint’ course. We also visited a bespoke leather maker Lee who is certainly a master of her trade.
