Know more about Nelson Mandela House

US Ambassador to South Africa visiting Nelson Mandela House.

The Nelson Mandela National Museum, commonly referred to as Mandela House, is the house on Vilakazi Street, Orlando West, where the late former statesman lived from 1946 to 1962.

The house is located at number 8115, at the corner of Vilakazi and Ngakane Streets, a short distance up the road from Tutu House, the home of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

Nelson Mandela donated the house to the Soweto Heritage Trust to be run as a museum.

The house has bullet holes in the walls and the front wall has scorch marks from attacks. The inside hosts some original furnishings and memorabilia including photographs, citations given to Nelson Mandela, and the world championship belt given to Mandela by Sugar Ray Leonard.

The house was declared a National Heritage Site in 1999.
