Schools & Educational Visit

Nelson Mandela: The Official Exhibition is an essential cultural experience that will enrich learning in many subjects. Most suitable for groups aged 9 and over, students will first encounter Nelson Mandela as a child, and explore how each stage of his life shaped his journey to become the globally recognised face of the anti-apartheid struggle and South Africa’s first black president.

The immersive multi-media experience explores how and why Mandela chose to walk the path of reconciliation rather than of conflict; encourages identification with a strong sense of political awakening and will provide hope for a just and equality based future for all.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a free-to-download learning resource guide to help educators plan their visit and support learning through a range topics and themes. The full education resource guide is now available for download.
