The Nelson Mandela Museum, situated in the Eastern Cape in Qunu and Mthatha, launched two photographic exhibitions at Drakenstein Prison, formerly known as Victor Verster Prison, and the Parliament of South Africa, in Cape Town, as part of its outreach initiative and in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s release from prison on February 11, 1990.

The exhibitions, both identical, feature six prominent themes; Son of the Soil, Spirit of Struggle, Beacon of Hope, Icon of Democracy, International Statesman and Father of the Nation, and each of these capture the different facets of Nelson Mandela during various stages in his life.

Both exhibitions were launched on the February 11, 2010.

Says Khwezi Mpumlwana, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Museum: “This exhibition will bring the Mandela legacy from the place of his birth and upbringing to the Victor Verster Prison where he spent his last days of incarceration. As the Museum we are also very honoured to be part of the tremendously important opening of Parliament, which is also being celebrated on the 20th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s release.

“For the Nelson Mandela Museum, 2010 has enormous significance as it celebrates 20 years of freedom, and 10 years since the Museum, created in his honour, opened its doors. The museum has created this exhibition to mark this special occasion and to celebrate this legend’s life.”
