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.

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.

Well, never could have guessed this brillant location site. Still hidden in plain site. Love the idea the revolution was happening in plain site on a lillywhite neighborhood street. Brillant.
