  • Cool smaller mueseum in the town. Take time to stroll around town if you stop here. Great shops, great people.

  • *Great stop for traditional Zambian food (quick/buffet style) en route to Livingstone. *Lovely craft market inside the Choma Museum, good prices, supports Zambian artisans. *We didn't go through the museum this trip but have enjoyed it in the past. *You need permission before taking a photo of the three huge metal balls in the field. We got permission. Even then it's hard to read the sign, so I will transcribe it here: BUSH CLEARING EQUIPMENT Three eleven-ton metal balls were used to erase trees connecting them with the battleship anchor chain & pulling them by huge Caterpillars; in preparation for the flooding of the Gweembe Valley basin, following the construction of the Kafue Dam 1957
  • Preserving Zambian History is very important.. craft & archives are kept really well. Customer service was welcoming & clean environment.
  • Great atmosphere!
  • Small, but very rich in Zambian cultural history, especially of Southern province. It also showcases a beautiful and often neglected part of Zambian history - The Choma declaration. A must see.
  • It's wonderful to a place visit though not fully packed but gives a good face to Choma town.
