Now on view at Holocaust Museum Houston through January 3, 2021, Mandela: Struggle for Freedom explores the earthshaking fight for justice and human dignity in South Africa – and its relevance to issues of today. Visitors of all ages can experience the tiny cell where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison, take a stand in front of a giant 22-foot long by 9-foot tall armored vehicle, make a virtual protest poster on a digital light table, or enter a secret apartment for freedom fighters forced underground.

Mandela: Struggle for Freedom was developed by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) (Winnipeg, Canada) in partnership with the Apartheid Museum (Johannesburg, South Africa).
