The Stellenbosch Village Museum comprises of four historic houses and their gardens, each representing a different period in the architectural development of Stellenbosch.

The VOC Kruithuis, built in 1777, is the only old powder magazine house to have survived from the days when the Cape was a posession of the Dutch East India Company.

The museum is not a 'boring overview of facts, but a colorful and interactive reenactment with 'guides' in costume that tell surprising stories.

The Stellenbosch Museum is certainly one of those 'best things to do with kids' in Stellenbosch.
