Formerly known as the David Livingstone Memorial Museum, this historic building is the oldest and the largest museum in the country. Exhibits include photos, instruments and possessions of David Livingstone, but the museum explores more of the nation’s history than a single man. Model villages of five different ethnic groups give visitors a chance to examine Zambian culture, and the ethnography and art wing of the museum showcases traditional crafts and handiwork from local tribes.
Livingstone Museum is located next to the tourist office on Mosi-oa-Tunya Road, behind Jollyboys Backpackers. Entry is about USD$5 and the museum is open daily from 8:30 to 4:30. The local witchcraft exhibit is not to be missed.
