Really interesting if combined with Soweto and the anti apartheid museum. Gives you a picture of how the changes in South Africa came about and how terrorists can become heroes.Extremely well laid out and preserved.

Had lunch here and then a lool around museum. Had only 90 minutes which wasn't enough unfortunately but found the exhibits fascinating. It gave a different insight into the struggles of the ANC and I wish we'd had longer.

Lilisleaf is so well preserved and is such a vital piece of our history. It's remarkable to see the detail that this museum presents and is well worth the trip to gain some key insight.

This place is well worth a visit it can be as long as 2-3 hours to really absorb so much detail. Staff helpful and food at the Cafe great. Highly reccomend

My partner and I visited Liliesleaf farm wanting to know more about the Spear of the Nation and we weren't disappointed. A lot of very detailed information and very nicely put, with loads of memorabilia, videos and interactive exhibitions.
