Liliesleaf is not just another museum but a place where Mandela lived undercover together with the top leadership of the ANC! The sidewalk that leads to the Museum from the car-park is lined with colourful and informative banners describing the liberation history of South Africa....More

Museum well organised in terms of written and audio information. Focuses on what kept the struggle alive and the key part played by Denis Goldberg. Whole section dedicated to Norway. Gives you a good background on how Lilliesleaf Farm contributed to keeping the struggle alive....More

When you get there view the video first. It gives a great overview of many decades. Then go through the various buildings. Don't miss the "Great Escape" video. Fascinating!

Found a walk around this museum very interesting. if you have a lot of time there is lots to read. We started out reading every board before we even got to the reception which we found out afterwards wasn't 100% necessary as they cover off...More

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.
