The Nelson Mandela Museum tour gives you unique insight into the life of Nelson Mandela. You will be able to follow in the footsteps of the young Mandela, experience his roots, and get a sense of the natural, cultural and historic landscape of his development.
The "Long Walk to Freedom" exhibition, conveying his own words will give you profound insight into his influences and development as a person, freedom fighter and hero of the struggle.
The Museum is distributed across three sites: The impressive Bhunga Building in Umtata, the spiritual Mvezo - where Mandela was born, and Qunu - the cultural village where he grew up.
At the historic Bhunga building you will experience the story of Nelson Mandela told in his own words. It is based on his book, "Long walk to Freedom". The Bhunga also houses an international selection of diverse gifts that Madiba received during his presidency.
At Mvezo, birthplace of Mandela, time has not changed the way of life of the local community. You will easily get a sense of the peaceful surroundings into which the baby Mandela was born.
At Qunu, the young Rolihlahla assumed the name Nelson, as was the custom at missionary schools. In his book "Long walk to Freedom", Madiba states that Qunu is where he spent the happiest moments of his childhood. Qunu is a modest yet vibrant village where a Youth and Heritage centre is being built. Activities planned at the centre include youth programmes and tourism development.
