Nelson Mandela Foundation


MANDELA My Life: The 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 and the Melbourne Museum, this brand-new touring exhibit will make its world premiere in Australia in September 2018 at the prestigious Melbourne Museum, before embarking on its global museum tour in 2019.

Opening in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mandela’s birth, this official Nelson Mandela Foundation exhibition is expertly curated from Mandela’s extensive physical and digital archives, much of which have never before left South Africa.

This captivating new exhibition will be brought to life through original artefacts, rare and amazing film, sound and imagery, immersive multimedia environments and scenic recreations that allow visitors of all ages to engage with, and honour, the legacy of this extraordinary world leader.

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