The Nelson Mandela Foundation’s Centre of Memory has been open to the public since 2013. It houses a permanent exhibition, The Life & Times of Nelson Mandela, and provides space for temporary exhibitions that address past and current social issues. An online version of the permanent exhibition has been made available on the Google Arts & Culture platform. A selfie box installed in the permanent exhibition space has proven to be popular with visitors.
In the past year, the Foundation devoted itself to growing the number of visitors to the Centre of Memory through liaison with the Gauteng Tourism Authority. During the report period, 2 337 people visited the Foundation, including walk-ins and bookings.
