  • Spent 2 hours walking through the Museum. It really provided a great insight to Zambia‚Äôs history. Excellent  more »
  • Old school, outdated, but blends in perfectly with the surroundings. A 1 hour visit gave me a better understanding of DL, though only one room is dedicated to his life and travels.  more »
  • A bit disappointing, as it is a little dated, and a big part is just the history of man. The David Livingstone room was very interesting but overall a bit disappointing  more »

  • this is one of Livingstone historical bearers. ranging from evolution to all that needs I be jotted down and taught in African history. I loved it because it made me travel back in time and have a feel of how they felt. from the struggle for independence to when Zambia became independent
  • Quite a number of interesting artefacts. It's very affordable to visit and very easy to find and get to. There are different sections for wildlife, colonialism, human life, and I was especially interested in the village life exhibition and old crafts such as pottery, beadwork, fabrics and woodwork. They give a lot of insight into our rich Zambian history. The only downside was that you weren't allowed to take pictures inside as there were so many amazing displays. But it's worth passing through.
  • Has Interesting galleries on the culture and history of Zambia. This is a better museum than the National museum in Lusaka. The gallery on David Livingstone has a good collections, including some of Livingstone's letters. Also important is the showcasing of the several local people who assisted Livingstone.
  • Nice place and brings back historical issues to reality
  • if you like history it's well worth a visit
