Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory to Open to the Public Early Next Year

November 18, 2013

On Monday, November 18th, South African President Jacob Zuma opened the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, the official home of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg. The date marks the 20th anniversary of the Multi Party Negotiating Process (MPNP) approving South Africa’s interim constitution, prior to the country’s historic 1994 general election.

Early next year the public will be able to view the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize and other archive material from Nelson Mandela’s collection.

The Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory contains handwritten letters, the briefcase he used during his one-term presidency, and a perspex structure representing the size of his Robben Island cell.

Admission will be free, but will require advance booking online.
