When you have the falls and other attraction to see you really must like history to go here. It does have lots of memorabilia about Stanley Livingston. So if you like history if. Don’t miss the curio markets

If you have a free morning or afternoon in Livingstone, the museum is worth a visit to learn more about Dr Livingstone and Zambian history. Good to combine with a trip to the craft market to buys any curios.

Good insight to the local area and the heritage of Livingstone. Definitely get the impression that the museum is anti-development. Has a very interesting history about David Livingstone.
