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.
