Well preserved, thoughtful monument to a big life
mar 2021
Well preserved, helpful tour guides and right in the heart of Vilakazi Street, around the corner from the Hector Pietersen Memorial. Grab some lunch down the street after your visit.

Cosy house it must have been for the couple.
nov 2020
This is the place to be on earth. The house is located 25 min from Johannesburg and it’s worth the drive if you go there. The guides are very well informed about the history and everything is pretty self explanatory. A lot of history is associated with this house and I was moved by it. If you want to learn more about Nelson Mandela’s evolution this is a must visit

History
feb 2020
An historic, thought provoking visit. The house was very small and extremely busy/touristy, however a must see as it is packed with history, stories and memorabilia. I had also done Constitution Hill and The Apartheid Museum so this was a must in South African history.

A must-visit ...
jan 2020
The nº 8115 single-storeyt red brick matchbox where Nelson Mandela lived prior to his arrest and briefly after his release from prison is an historic must-visit for anyone to immerse into his story. According to his words "(...) for me nº8115 was the centre point of my world, the place marked with an x in my mental geography".

We stopped at Vilikazi Street on our Red Bus Tour and frankly, it has become seriously commercialized. Lots of people, (local and tourists), as well as artists trying to take advantage of the tourists. Mandela house is small and when groups go in, it gets very crowded.

A must-visit for those who remember apartheit
apr 2019
In many ways this was a pilgrimage I never thought that I'd make in my lifetime. I grew up in South Africa during apartheid and vaguely heard about Nelson Mandela since he had been imprisoned and "Banned". Madiba was one reason that apartheid collapsed. The young woman who was our guide was informative and warm and allowed me to be in a home and township that and a white boy, I was not allowed to visit.

An enlightening Visit
sep 2019
An interesting stop off whilst having a spare day in Johannesburg – felt that this was one of those places you need to visit when in the area for a short time. A well laid out and interesting house, with a lot of historic information on Nelson’s life and struggles.

This was interesting to see but doesn't take much time. If youre in the area go see. Nice to have a guide tell his story.

If in Soweto you must see this house
mar 2020
We saw this house during a tour of Soweto and we were so glad we stopped. It was an honor to visit a house that had been the residence of such an important global figure. A visit here doesn't last long as the house isn't large but there are displays and information in each of the rooms. Guides are also available for hire on site.
