Museum van de Caab at Solms Delta

A cultural experience in Franschhoek that’s worth exploring.

Solms Delta’s unique and interactive Museum van de Caab is an entertaining and educational way for visitors to participate in the history of the Franschhoek Valley. The first vines were planted on the Solms estate in the 17th century, but the exhibition goes as far back as the Stone Age, showcasing artefacts from inhabitants of the area, and continuing through the San and Khoi.

The tragic history of slavery, from the time that the farm was inhabited by colonists, is tracked through songs, personal recordings of the Khoisan, and chronicled histories of some slaves’ descendants.

If you are curious about studying your family’s roots and identity, or you’d like to utilise the space for research and educational purposes, the museum is the perfect place to do so.
