Our Purpose

Mandela House strives to be a world-class visitor attraction and a leading centre for the preservation, presentation, and research of the historical heritage and Mandela Family legacy.

Our mission at Mandela House is to maintain an effective, efficient, and meaningful experience for all visitors. We work daily to provide an environment of mutual respect, dignity, and reconciliation in which every visitor relives the story of President Nelson Mandela’s home and his life as a whole.

Every experience should culminate with the sentiment of mutual respect, reconciliation and tolerance amongst South Africans and visitors to the country.

The Mandela House is managed by the Apartheid Museum on behalf of the Soweto Heritage Trust.
