Nelson Mandela 100 Years Celebration:

A personal message from Mr. Mandela


6 March 2005

To Whom It May Concern

 

The Nelson Mandela Museum is a not for profit institution established by the government of South Africa as part of a portfolio of legacy projects that seek to transform the heritage landscape from our apartheid past. At the same time, it is a resource for promoting economic development throughout tourism in an impoverished region of the country. This is a region in which I was born and grew up.

I was privileged to open the Museum five years ago, and continue to take personal interest in its work. In our view it is working hard to give substance to its vision of becoming “a living museum….. that embraces development and inspires people through education, culture and tourism.”

We would encourage and value any assistance which you are in a position to give to the Museum.

I thank you

Conservation and Heritage Resources

The Nelson Mandela Museum is home to diverse collections such as paintings, ceramics fabric, paper and buildings, all requiring different methods of conservation and different skills. It embraces a wide range of collections that are both South African and foreign in origin. These collections are the gifts that were given to Nelson Mandela during his presidency by the international community.

That is why it is important that conservation in the Museum should be aimed at reducing factors that could result in the deterioration of the collection.

The Bhunga Building in town, where our material objects are mainly housed, is situated in a historic building that needs technical equipment to control the environment to prevent the deterioration of the objects.
