Lilliesleaf Farm

An award-winning national heritage site, this unassuming farm in the leafy Rivonia neighborhood is where ANC leaders plotted to violently overthrow the government, only to be thwarted by a police raid in 1963 that resulted in their incarceration. Nelson Mandela lived here, disguised as a domestic worker; though he wasn't here when the raid took place, he was implicated in the ensuing Rivonia Trial. The exhibits are extremely well done, with original video, images, audio, and text.
