This museum is, literally, his house, adorned with honorary degrees that Mandela doesn't actually care about. There is no history of what he did, or what happened in the house. There is no discussion of how significant Mandela was, or why this house is important. It's just a small brick house. Save the fifteen minutes and R60 you would spend here.

Good museum and exhibition. The museum is very popular because of Mandela stayed there before and after he went to prison.

Mandela House (Entrance fee R60) located also in Soweto was Nelson Mandela's first true home with his second wife Winnie. Modest, filled with history. Nice picture of Mandela surrounded by his girls - wife, daughters and granddaughter!
