We really enjoyed the temporary Mandela exhibit and spent most of our time there. It was very enlightening and seemed to give an accurate picture of a real and heroic man. All the time there left us little time in the rest of the museum, so that could be why we found it so confusing to find our way through. I would not take a child younger than 9 or 10 unless they were particularly mature. It is a lot of reading and some of the material is very intense. Even I could not stay in the movie. Some I was not even entirely comfortable with, for example in one room of "martyrs" it seemed to be suggesting a man was a hero for setting off a bomb in a market. I don't know the whole story, I am just saying the whole thing takes a lot of thought and can be a bit exhausting. This is an important museum and worth the visit. Just make sure you give it the time and that you are mentally prepared for it.
