I needed a gift for a housewarming for a VW lover. Went to the AutoPavilion to purchase something and found some very interesting gifts to choose from. They really cater for everyone in the family and the service received was very good. Very helpful staff.

The Pavillion gives you an excellent view into the history of VW in South-Africa with quite a few "hands-on" things to do an a look at almost any model they ever built.

We were there last season and it was quit nice and all the cars were well presented. The effects were also quit nice. Very good information about Volkswagen. Worse a visit when you like cars and history of them.

The auto-pavilion is well worth a visit. The museum is engaging and interactive. The tour around the VW factory was the highlight of the visit for me.
