Museums in South Africa
Rod Kinsey who, with Con Engelbrecht and Ken Sink, managed Classic Cars and Motorcycles in Margate for four years, has built a motor museum in a specially constructed barn on his family estate. Known as the Munster Motor Museum, the facility reflects his family’s lifelong passion and contribution to cars and motor racing.
Thomas River, named in 1801, takes its name from an English deserter, Thomas Bentley. Part of Van Der Kemps missionary, Bentley was killed by a poison Bushman Arrow while crossing the river, thus duly named Thomas River. The original train station, sited between the stone forts, dates from the late 1870’s with the new station coming into being in 1926. The station saw its last train in 1948 when the new line opened. Thomas River Historical Village, reborn in 2003, has been passionately restored by Jeff and Ann Sansom to take you back to yesteryear.
