FREE Days for Indiana Teachers | Mandela: The Official Exhibition

Hoosier teachers, you're invited to visit Mandela: The Official Exhibition this summer, before you bring your class on a field trip to the exhibit this fall! Simply show your Indiana school teacher/staff ID badge at our Box Office for one free adult admission ticket on July 11 or July 23. Additional guest tickets are available at regular admission price.

Mandela: The Official Exhibition (recommended for ages 12+) takes guests on a personal journey through the life of the iconic freedom fighter, human rights icon, and world leader. The exhibit features previously unseen film and photos and the display of more than 150 historical artifacts and personal effects, combined with unique insights from family, friends, and others to reveal the deeper stories behind the headlines. 

We love seeing Indiana teachers on school field trips with their students. Now is your time to explore the museum without your class. By visiting Mandela: The Official Exhibition this summer before your field trip, you can take time with each artifact, photo, film clip, and exhibit label.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”       
—Nelson Mandela

The exhibition is open June 22, 2024–Jan. 20, 2025, and school field trip visits begin Sept. 3, 2024. An exhibit guide and other educational resources will be available this fall. If you have any questions about these FREE days for Indiana teachers or planning your field trip for the 2024–2025 school year, please email Sarah Fox, School Programs Supervisor, at
