Inside the museum, we’ll have free cake and refreshments, along with an opportunity for you to see the exhibit Mandela: The Official Exhibition, for free. The evening will culminate with a long awaited, spectacular fireworks display!

Parking for this event will be free and plentiful in the Fan Field lot on Research Parkway, directly across from the Bush Library and Museum.
