Information about the Nelson Mandela Family Home

At a rally welcoming him home to Soweto his opening words were, "I have come home at last." However, after 11 days back at the house he moved out again.

He later wrote in his autobiography:  “That night I returned with Winnie to No. 8115 in Orlando West it was only then that I knew in my heart I had left prison. For me No. 8115 was the centre point of my world, the place marked with an X in my mental geography.”

Mr. Mandela donated the house to the Soweto Heritage Trust (of which he is the founder) on 1 September 1997, to run as a museum.  It was declared a National Heritage Site in 1999.

This House Museum comprising four inter-leading rooms, contains an assortment of memorabilia, paintings and photographs of the Mandela family, as well as a collection of honorary doctorates bestowed on Mr. Mandela by universities and institutions around the world.  There is also a boxing belt from Sugar Ray Leonard, a multi-coloured cloak presented to the former president, and a row of his old boots.

However, during the ensuing years, when his life as a freedom fighter was all-consuming, Mr. Mandela seldom stayed there. He was the "Black Pimpernel", living a life on the run, until his arrest and imprisonment in 1962.

The fact that Soweto was the 16th most popular place for tourists to South Africa during 1999 was ascribed to the opening of Mandela House in December 1997

Nelson Mandela's humble little house in Orlando West, Soweto, now called the Mandela Family Museum, is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history on the world's most famous former prisoner. The former South African President Nelson Mandela lived in this humble home from 1946 to 1962 before he was imprisoned on Robben Island.

President Nelson Mandela returned to the house after his release from prison in 1990, despite suggestions from government officials that he should find a safer home.
