The Nelson Mandela National Museum is the original residence of Nelson Mandela- the famous President of South Africa, which had been renovated and partly modified to allow for public exhibitions.

The red brick house is structurally a single story house. The exterior bears numerous bullet holes and shredded walls from the bombardments during the historic freedom movement of South Africa. Among the interior specialities, the house bears traditionally furnished walls and articles which have several photographs and mementoes of the historical achievements of the nation and Nelson Mandela. Among the most celebrated collections, many national artefacts and especially the famous World Championship Belt which was gifted to Nelson Mandela by the renowned American boxer Sugar Ray Leonard are the prime attractions of the Museum.

  • A center for the assistance of visitors and special informative sections has been newly added to the museum. The South African Government has honoured the building with the status of a Site of National Heritage.
