Holocaust Museum Houston's young professionals group, NEXTGen, invites you to join us for a private look at the U.S. premiere of Mandela: Struggle for Freedom. This captivating exhibition explores the earthshaking fight for justice and human dignity in South Africa – and its relevance to issues of today. Visitors 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.
For your safety, the Museum will be closed to the public and social distancing guidelines will be strictly followed. Face masks are required. If you do not have one, the Museum will provide one.
