This museum offers a walk through 150 years of history of Stellenbosch village life. Four houses from different architectural periods (1709-1850) are decorated according to the décor fashion from the specific period and even their gardens are periodically correct. You’ll need a few hours to cover all on show and fortunately costumed guides are on hand to give a handy explanation or two.

Open 9am-5pm Mon-Sat; 10am-1pm Sun (May-Aug); 10am-4pm Sun (Sept-Apr).

Admission R25 adults; R5 kids.
