The Stellenbosch Village Museum Reviews
The 4 houses are closely situated making it an easy walk. They provide a quick overview of life in Stellenbosch, stretching from the 1600's through to the Victorian era. Took us about 1.5 hours to... more »
Four period houses provided a glimpse into life in 18th and 19th centuries. Well preserved and well presented. more »
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.
