  • We just had one hour for this museum, but you really need two hours. Most of it I knew already, but it still gave me some more insights in the life of Mandela and the apartheid struggle. It is a must....  more »
  • We were very disappointed as we had chosen to stay in the town so we could have time to see the museum. It s currently closed for renovations and there is no set date to reopen  more »
  • Come and walk in Madiba's shoes. The guides are absolutely amazing. I had a knowledge rich walk in Madiba's shoes and I was challenged by it and enjoyed thoroughly.
  • Lovely museum to visit. Large and spacious. What a treat to see the actual cell of Nelson Mandela. The restrooms were exceptional- modern, clean with air freshener, hand lotion, sanitizing wash. Outside gardens also beautiful. More suited to older learners and adults as it required lots of reading.
