I like history and this gives a great history of the Nobel Prize. I learned a lot and it is not too much reading. Small, free museum but well worth your time if you are in the area

It's very small, so I wouldn't make a special trip out of your way to see it, but if you're going to Nelson Mandela Square, it's just inside the mall, and worth a 30 minute visit. It's good to reflect on all the people who won Nobel Peace Prizes and all the sacrifices they made. The museum is free, which... More

Located in Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton, Johannesburg, this little museum is not only good but free of charge. It is dedicated to all of the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize but naturally focuses on Nelson Mandela and the other South African winners. We visited here at the beginning of our trip to South Africa and the "I Love Mandela"... More

A neat little exhibition, sponsored by a company that sells Kruger Rands and other gold coins. It gives a fascinating insight to the Nobel Peace Prize and all the winners. While it focuses on the South African prize winners, it also gives you a fantastic view of all the winners around the world - year by year - and the... More

This museum is located inside the Nelson Mandela Square. The gentleman by the front door gave me a quick overview on what was inside this museum. Lots of good artwork and informative information about Mandela and other freedom fighters in South Africa and around the world. All of this was free to the public. Well worth the visit.

Posters in the Sandton Shopping Centre advertised the WE LOVE MANDELA exhibition at the Peacemakers Museum which is tucked away on the Lower Level. I am an experienced museum goer. This museum is a perfect little gem! The gentleman at the desk, a 4th generation South African, gave my friend and me a quick overview starting with a timeline of... More

This museum opened just a few months ago, and is dedicated to those exceptional people who have, through exceptional courage and tenacity made the world a different place. You will find it in the heart of Sandton, on the Nelson Mandela Square, virtually behind the Montego Bay (exceptional seafood) restaurant. There is a person in attendance daily to assist with...

Learn about South Africa's gold history, at this beautiful museum. Build a symbolic dove with your pledge to be a peace maker, and have it hung in the museum. Also, have the opportunity to purchase unique gold coins after learning about the rich history that goes along with them.
