Spread across the three sites of Bhunga, Mvezo, and Qunnu, the museum presents the various phases, events, and activities of the great leader. The Bhunga building tells the story of the “Madiba”, based on his book “Long Walk To Freedom”. It is also the site where the visitors can take a glance at the worldwide appreciation which he received in the form of gifts during his tenure as the president. Mvezio is the place of Nelson Mandela’s birth while Qunnu was where he spent his childhood. Nelson Mandela dedicated his entire life for the uplift and development of the local community. He requested that the museum serve the same purpose.
