  • Lilisilef, once the nerve centre of the liberation movement and a place of refuge for its leaders

Situated in residential Rivonia, the insightful and interactive museum experience at Liliesleaf honours South Africa's remarkable heritage and the impressive trajectory of South Africa's socio-political past. Once the headquarters of Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), the military wing of the ANC and the Congress Alliance, Liliesleaf holds a position of esteem among struggle landmarks in South Africa. Visitors to Liliesleaf will experience a first hand account of the events and circumstances leading up to the infamous raid of the Rivonia farm, as well as insights into some of the revolutionary personalities who helped to shape South Africa's democracy. Liliesleaf is one of Joburg's best museums, not only because the new structures have been integrated so eloquently into the existing historical site, but because it challenges visitors to consider their responses to thorny moral and political dilemmas that were inseparable from life under apartheid and frighteningly pertinent today.
