Lovely museum in a group of separate houses. Each house has a mini spoken guide on entrance, interesting items but No guide or other information. We enjoyed it but it could be much much better with a little imagination and work.
Interesting, small museum which takes you back almost 300 years. Also sheds light on the role of slaves in Stellenbosch‘s history. However, some more explanations would have been helpful since the exhibition mainly shows the old houses and furniture. Little is said about the living conditions/realities of their inhabitants. Still, worth the price. Might be interesting for kids too to see the decoration and kids‘ bedrooms.
