A Revolutionary Experience

A series of experiential galleries will take you on Nelson Mandela’s journey to becoming the ‘Father of South Africa’, and a globally loved and respected figure. His epic story of heroic struggle, forgiveness and compassion is explored in new, personal and revealing ways.

You will go back in time to the rural childhood home that shaped the great leader that he became.
You will follow him through years of turbulent struggle against the apartheid regime and learn how his remarkable spirit remained unbroken, but at great personal cost.

You will relive the global celebration of his release after 27 years in prison, and his historic ascent as South Africa’s first democratically elected president.

With wisdom from the man himself, plus exclusive insights from his family and those that knew him best, visitors will see Nelson Mandela in a new light. A century since his birth and five years since his passing, what does ‘Nelson Mandela’ mean today, in a world where inequality and injustice are still rife? Nelson Mandela: The Official Exhibition asks these difficult questions and examines his legacy. Nelson Mandela’s values and unshakable belief in a better world are as vital now as they were during his lifetime.
