Mandela House Museum

Nelson Mandela lived in this humble 'matchbox' house with his second wife Winnie in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In order to make the house into a museum, the garden has been concreted over and photos and text added to the walls, while the garage has become the ticket hall. Inside, the small rooms are now filled with memorabilia belonging to the pair including letters, gifts and awards, as well as some original items of furniture. A small museum, the visit will not take much more than 15 minutes.




Open 09:00–16:45.
