Mandela: The Official Exhibition

Friday July 29, 2022 to Sunday April 23, 2023

Mandela: The Official Exhibition is the major new global exhibition that explores the life of one of the world’s most famous freedom fighters and political leaders. The epic story of Nelson Mandela is told in a series of experiential galleries from his rural childhood home through years of turbulent struggle against the apartheid regime, to his eventual vindication and final years as South Africa’s first democratically elected president.

Visitors will learn about why he is still such an important figure, as the exhibit explores his fight for racial equality, his uncanny ability to forgive, and his tireless work to unify South Africa. The heavy cost of his defiance – the 27 years he spent in prison and the loss of family and liberty - would profoundly impact him for the rest of his life. Mandela’s values and commitment to making the world a better place are just as vital now as they were during his lifetime. His is a story that can educate and inspire all who experience it.  

Mandela: The Official Exhibition, produced by Round Room Live in partnership with the Royal House of Mandela (RHom) and RHoM Investments, will be on display in the Ansary Gallery of American History beginning July 29, 2022, through April 23, 2023.
