Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

22 Sep 2018 to 3 Mar 2019

Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition is a new world-class, collections-rich exhibition on the inspirational life of Nelson Mandela. Produced in close collaboration with The Nelson Mandela Foundation of South Africa, this brand-new touring exhibit will make its world premiere in Australia at the prestigious Melbourne Museum, before embarking on its global museum tour in 2019. Opening in September 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary year of Mandela’s birth, this official Mandela Foundation exhibition is expertly curated from Mandela’s extensive physical and digital archives, much of which has never-before left South Africa.

This captivating new exhibition will be brought to life through a rich collection of original artefacts, rare and amazing film, sound and imagery, immersive multi-media environments and scenic re-creations that allow visitors of all ages to engage with, and honour the legacy of this extraordinary world leader.

Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition will commemorate, illuminate and importantly share Nelson Mandela’s Living legacy with the world.

Live his journey.
