Koopmans-De Wet House review Rate it

Set amid the hustle and bustle of Strand Street, this Cape Dutch building designed by the architect Louis Thibault was the first privately owned townhouse to be opened as a public museum - in 1914. Once belonging to the wealthy socialite Marie Koopmans-De Wet, it is furnished to re-create an 18th-century residential home and showcases an exquisite collection of Cape furniture, eastern and Dutch crockery and red quarry tiles imported from Batavia.
