The exhibition is also essential in commemorating, illuminating and sharing Mandela’s legacy with the whole world (McLean 205). In my visit to the Melbourne Museum, I managed to satisfy my curiosity of the features and fun that I had always read in books. The next section was amazing since it explored one of my favorite sections. There was a celebration of the fashion designers, industry luminaries and models in this section from 1960s up to today. I cannot forget the fame Lab that we visited after the model section in which we had a session with live scientists on stage. The session was full of true scientific stories, laughs and genius experiments (Delhey 69). My most anticipated section was the area with the exhibition of Nelson Mandela My Life.
