Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center

Join our group tour of Mandela: Struggle for Freedom, Illinois Holocaust Museum’s newest special exhibition! The exhibit traces the history of the fight against apartheid in South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as one of its central figures. With immersive environments, Mandela promotes human rights with a clear message: all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Among its many dramatic features and original artifacts, the exhibition replicates the eight-foot by seven-foot cell where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in jail, before emerging at age 71 to continue negotiating democratic change with his former enemies.
