The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures the most com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal arte­facts, doc­u­ments, per­sonal items and art­works ever to be shown out­side of South Africa.

With more than 200 arte­facts from The Nel­son Man­dela Foun­da­tion and Nel­son Man­dela’s pri­vate col­lec­tion, this of­fi­cial ex­hi­bi­tion has been cu­rated across 10 gal­leries in the Tour­ing Hall at Mel­bourne Mu­seum, guid­ing vis­i­tors on an emo­tive multi-sen­sory jour­ney through the rich and in­ter­ac­tive show.

Among the ob­jects in­cluded in the ex­hi­bi­tion is the orig­i­nal sound record­ing of Man­dela’s Rivo­nia Trial speech in 1964, his orig­i­nal ap­point­ments di­ary from 1997 and the box­ing glove signed and gifted by Muham­mad Ali to Man­dela, an avid box­ing fan.

Vis­i­tors can feel the power and emo­tion of one of the most dra­matic and sig­nif­i­cant mo­ments of Man­dela’s life — the mo­ment he puts apartheid on trial — by ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the orig­i­nal sound record­ing of Nel­son Man­dela’s Rivo­nia Trial speech in 1964, ac­com­pa­nied by a pow­er­ful and im­mer­sive new film piece plac­ing vis­i­tors in the court­room as he de­liv­ers his speech.

Vis­i­tors can also dis­cover and ex­plore Man­dela’s jour­ney from child to man through a spec­tac­u­lar 7 m-long scenic pro­jec­tion wall of an­i­ma­tions and land­scapes, with el­e­ments of Man­dela’s child­hood brought to life in an au­dio-vis­ual piece us­ing his own words and im­ages.

Ex­plore how and why cer­tain in­flu­ences shaped a young Man­dela with orig­i­nal ob­jects, film and doc­u­ments delv­ing into the early life of Man­dela as he es­tab­lished him­self in Jo­han­nes­burg.

Per­sonal items in­clude pho­to­graphs of Man­dela with his first wife Eve­lyn and their chil­dren, and his sec­ond mar­riage to Win­nie.

Dis­cover the covert na­ture of Man­dela’s daily ex­is­tence and ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing his pe­riod of un­der­ground op­er­a­tions when he was dubbed the Black Pim­per­nel.

Small cell-like rooms, based on Man­dela’s time in prison in­clud­ing at Robben Is­land, al­low vis­i­tors to ex­plore as­pects of his life in prison.

Film and pho­to­graphs of the iso­lated prison at Robben Is­land set the scene, let­ters be­tween Man­dela and his fam­ily, and au­dio of Man­dela per­son­ally re­count­ing his ex­pe­ri­ences pro­vide an in­sight into the emo­tional im­pact of his long im­pris­on­ment.

Vis­i­tors will also be able to see and hear the events of Man­dela’s first day of free­dom on Fe­bru­ary 11, 1990 when he was re­leased from Vic­tor Ver­ster prison.

A wall of film, im­ages and sound will show the pro­gres­sion of Man­dela from that very first day, to his elec­tion and in­au­gu­ra­tion as South Africa’s first demo­crat­i­cally elected pres­i­dent.
