Fodor's Review

Main Street North doglegs to the right at Lady Grey Street before continuing as Main Street South. On your left, the Paarl Museum, formerly the Oude Pastorie, occupies a gorgeous Cape Dutch home built as a parsonage in 1787. In fact, the building itself is of more interest than the collection, which includes odds and ends such as silver, glass, and kitchen utensils, donated by local families.
