This is the place to be to understand more about the life of a great man. The structure showing the image of Nelson Mandela from a certain angle is really creative and impressive. A must visit if you.... more »
There is so much history to read and very little room to do it without disturbing the flow. A bigger place is needed to house all the information in a way that someone who needs to know about the history can take their time going through it. The outside surroundings are neat and well kept. I suspect that the poles of the sculpture needs a bit of realignment in certain areas so that it appears like when we see the older pictures here. Otherwise it is an experience worth having.
This part of our South African history and heritage. It is wonderfully exhibited to be enjoyed by the visitors. I recommend that everyone must make an effort to visit this place. Hopefully the museum will be opened as it was being finished off.
