When we went to the capture sight we found the museum quite disappointing, however it looks like they are putting the finishing touches to a new building....possibly a bigger and better museum.

I went here as part of a tour. The sculpture is a fascinating piece of perspective artwork. The site is also educational since it provides details of Mandela's life in short and digestible pieces of information.
