Final weeks of Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition

On March 3, Melbourne Museum will farewell Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition, marking the final chance for visitors to experience this ground-breaking retrospective.

Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition

Produced by iEC Exhibitions, TEG Live, and Museums Victoria, in full collaboration with The Nelson Mandela Foundation of South Africa, the exhibition features the most comprehensive collection of original artefacts ever to be shown outside of South Africa.

Showcasing over 200 pieces from The Nelson Mandela Foundation and Nelson Mandela’s private collection, Mandela’s story is brought to life with unprecedented intimacy and insight.

Witness firsthand the covert anti-apartheid activities that shaped Mandela’s daily existence as an activist, along with glimpses into his imprisonment and eventual liberation. The exhibition’s final chapter journeys through Mandela’s landmark years as South Africa’s first democratically elected president, and the indelible mark he left on communities the world over.

Emotive, insightful and multi-sensory, Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition has left visitors with a rich sense of Mandela’s extraordinary legacy.
