Fascinating few hours. Superb attention to detail. Loved the attention the both major and minor players. Made it feel very real. Comprehensive enough to go through on your own without a guide. Would hesitate to bring young children here unless they can read and really concentrate

A gem of a museum. Many museums could learn from the presentation. Spent 3 hours there including lunch in the café. Learned much about the early history.

We visited Liliesleaf a few years ago and what an interesting little place, tucked away. The museum is cleverly put together, with a fascinating account of events which happened there. beautifully designed. It had a lovely coffee shop where we had a bite to eat. Well worth a visit!

We in the US only received part of the story concerning Nelson Mandela and the ANC. The tour brings home the rest of the story.

The old farmhouse where Nelson Mandela lived before he was charged during the Rivonia Trials is worth a visit. Excellent information.

experience the underground and secure housing for the liberality participants of the democratic movement. place where military protocols and policies where discussed in a closeview. emancipation of the apartheid slavery was the main focal point against the oppressive regime.

Loved the experience as I could stand where the great leaders of time stood and made a difference. To see and hear of our modern history was so amazing. Definitely worth a visit.

This must be one of the best kept secrets. In the middle of what is now housing lies this important building. Brought here by my brother, who now just lives around the corner, this was a very special visit. We had already been up to Soweto to the house but seeing where everything came to a head was compelling.
