We only stopped off for an hour on our way out of the winelands but it was a fascinating interlude. Our guide was really knowledgeable about the collection in general as well as individual vehicles .

A beautiful setting in immaculate grounds, the hangar-like buildings house and amazing collection of beautifully maintained vehicles. The visit would have been enhanced by a guide in each hangar who could interact and expand about the cars, and answer any questions.

Housed in four large barn-style modern buildings, this collection is excellent. What is on display is regularly rotated, so you can go back at some other time and be assured that there will be many other cars to see. My only disappointment was in the descriptions of the cars. The print was far too small and the information too meagre.... More

Cudos on a magnificent display and arrangement of vehicles as well as the general state and ambience..

Well worth a visit. Treated my Dad of 85 and son of 23 and they both enjoyed the outing! Cars are in superb condition and well displayed. A lovely family outing at a reasonable entry fee.

What an amazing collection. Thank goodness for digital cameras I couldn't help just snapping away. Old film cameras would have cost me a fortune! Really worth a visit not only for vintage car fans but for anyone. This collection is in beautiful surroundings and in pristine condition.

Took my son to view the 4 large sheds, approximately 20 odd cars per shed area. Nice setup, classy as you'd expect from a Rupert venue. The whole things can be done very quickly and isnt' exactly interactive but it's affordable, nice, something different.

We went here on a hot day! Highly recommended...it's a great collection of cars displayed in a super way. Allow plenty of time to look and enjoy the collection. We allowed a 2 hours as a couple and this was perfect.
