After I have been looking for the museum for over an hour asking the guard and driving around I finally called and was told it has been shut down. Unfortunately in this country you don't know if somebody is telling you this because he doesn't...More

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

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...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...More
