Mandela House Museum, Soweto Reviews - Write a Review

  • Not much to see here. Most of the articles are in the Apartheid Museum. The tour to Soweto slums us much better.

  • It's well worth to visit the previous home of this great man but the tour very much depends on the guide and there are big differences.

  • A wonderful experience of being in the home that one of our most famous sons of the soil lived in. A truly humbling experience to have spent time in the yard that our first democratically elected president, Nelson Mandela, lived in before he was imprisoned. Highly recommended for everyone that can get there to actually visit.

  • Loved visiting the house of an Icon.What I loved more is the VIBE on Vilakazi Street.A must see and definately revisiting soon

  • My kids enjoyed listening to Mam Winnie's voice as well as Zinzi Mandela's recorded voice and just learning about Mandela's life. The life that is not in school textbooks
