“Good information. Good going on history”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We enjoyed the museum due to the fact that it was going on from an african view on the changes since the europeans have arried. Also the exhibitions of the animals was done in a very scenic view. The information about Livingstone where very detailed and you could almost feal how it was those days.

“Museum was nice”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

$10 for entry. Hot inside if it's summertime. Section for archaeological artifacts, the transition Africa endured before and after European settlement, wars, art, wildlife. Needs benches inside.

“Very Interesting Museum”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

A lot of interesting items and an opportunity to learn a lot more about David Livingston's affect on Africa. It was a warm day and awfully hot in the museum but worth the time to visit.

“Livingstone Museum”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Very sad to see the museum run without being looked after. It is the stuck in the same era since the 80's, with only an item or two being updated. Nothing has been changed or renewed since then, very disappointing.

“Get a guide, but take your time”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I came in with no knowledge of Zambian history and left with some blanks filled in, Our group had a guided tour, which was informative, but I wish we would have allocated more time to take some time at some of the exhibits.
