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. For information about opening hours and admission fees please visit the website.

The symbolism also has cultural and religious connotations. Detailed tourist information is available at www.taalmuseum.co.za
