“Worth Seeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Worth visiting as the museum will only take you about an hour to walk round and it's in the center of town so not out of the way.

“A bit tired but worth a hour or two”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you get to Livingstone, give it a visit they need your entrance fee. Original livinstone letter's have been stolen but are still a few to peruse. We need to support the museum otherwise a great adventurer's story could be lost forever.

“A very interesting little museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

I visited the museum with my daughter and really enjoyed it. The rooms are very well organised and the exhibits well presented. We particularly enjoyed the recreations of village life scenes. The stuffed animals were a bit tired-looking but so are those in London's Natural History Museum... The section dedicated to David Livingstone was also very informative and interesting. It may not have the last generation interactive attractions of big city museums but it's a testimony of Zambia's history and culture well worth visiting.

“Down at heel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The contents are good especially the wildlife display and the livingstone memorabilia. But all are jaded and need a face lift
