Very interesting 2 hours at this museum with lots of very interesting facts, well presented and somewhat upsetting. Well worth the 20 Rand (£1) entrance fee and a great place for lunch too.

I found the museum and exhibits very well put together. It was humbling and emotional experience. I took lots of time to take it all in - I was there for four hours including a pleasant lunch at Cedric's.

I took an overseas visitor to see one of our historic sights. It is very impressive and well done. We found that the hour's tour was sufficient as there is only so much information one can take in at a time. Definitely worth a repeat visit. It was also a poignant visit in view of the recent death of Nelson... More

Great place for learning about South African history! The exhibitions are well organised and explain in every single detail not only the actual events that made this place famous, but also events that came before and after the famous arrest of Nelson Mandela and other ANC members. It is very interactive and keeps you wanting more information, like a gripping... More

If you're at all interested in South African history, this place is fascinating!! A little off the beaten track as it were so could easily be overlooked. Well worth going to however, especially for the relatively low entrance price.

For anyone with an interest in South Africa's recent history Liliesleaf is a must see. The Rivonia property has been sucessfully transformed into a modern museum which details the ANC struggle against the white minority government. Many of the displays in the main house and outbuildings are interactive and provide a fascinating insight into the covert operations of MK and... More

Have been to this attraction twice now and feel it is very well executed. Together with the Apartheid museum I do feel I now have a better grasp on South Africa and its history. Particularly in regards to this time that revolves around the people, the politics and Nelson Mandela. Liliesleaf plays a very important role in what happened in... More

what a well thought-out, presented and fascinating museum this is, complemented by a good casual-dining restaurant. used by the anc to plot against the apartheid regime, the farm was the subject of a police raid that not only rounded up some of the most wanted people of the time but more importantly unearthed the cache of documents that provided much...
