About Nelson Mandela Museum

Take an inspiring tour through the life of former President and international icon Nelson Mandela.

Loved and esteemed throughout the globe for his determined energy to uplift life for everyone, ‘Madiba’ insisted that the Nelson Mandela Museum should not be dedicated to him. His vision is that it will be a stimulus for the enrichment and development of the locals of Qunu.

The Museum officially opened in 2 000, ten years after his release from prison in 1990 and incorporates three sites – the Bhunga Building in Mthatha, the spiritual Mvezo where Mandela was born, and Qunu, his childhood village.
