Museum van de Caab
The Museum van de Caab is located on the Solms Delta wine farm, just outside Franschhoek.
The estate looks back on 300 years of vine cultivating history and recent findings have unearthed the remains of a late stone-age settlement, directly next to the 18th century wine cellar in which the museum is located.
On the same site you can also see the remaining foundations of one of the oldest buildings at the Cape, a late 17th century hunting lodge.
The aim of the museum is to describe the social history of the estate and the wine producing industry in South Africa. Visitor will get to know the individuals that used to work and live on the farm, settlers, pioneers and slaves. Through audio-visual displays those who suffered through a lifetime of slavery will come to word and tell their story, supported by a large collection of items of daily use.
There is also a centre for genealogical research for those who wish to trace the history of their families.

Huguenot Memorial Museum
The Huguenot Memorial Museum is located in Franschhoek in South Africa's Western Cape region.
During the 17th century many Huguenots fled France where they were persecuted for their beliefs. Large numbers took the long journey to South Africa to start a new life as pioneers. Many of these Huguenot settlers came originally from the areas famous for their wine in France and, as the area around Franschhoek offers perfect conditions for growing wine, used their knowledge to settle down here and start to built up the area that is now known as Cape Winelands.
The memorial shows the statue of a woman, standing on a globe, holding a bible and a broken chain as a symbol for religious freedom. The three arches behind the statue symbolize the Holy Trinity.
The museum informs about the history of the Huguenots, the development of the settlement and also undertakes genealogical research. On display is also a collection of Dutch style period furniture.
