Village Museum

The Stellenbosch Village Museum (18 Van Ryneveld Street) is set for a beautiful insight into the town and its rich history. The museum, set in the oldest part of Stellenbosch, is divided into four historical houses and gardens, each reflecting a different architectural period with some beautiful Cape Dutch architecture. Across the road and further on you will find the Stellenbosch Art Gallery (corner of Van Riebeeck and Van Ryneveld) and the Sasol Art Museum (34 Van Ryneveld Street) Both buildings hold some impressive collections of art. Even those not interested in art will find a visit rewarding: It provides a good insight into the town and cultural aspects of the country and its people.Here one can travel through these time periods in a matter of minutes, experiencing fascinating architecture, and getting a glimpse of life in the early development of the Cape. It is just a few minutes’ walk from Life & Leisure.
