It is well worth up to 2 hours in this museum. The David Livingstone Gallery gives a fascinating insight into this much travelled explorer and there is also a gallery dedicated to the history of Zambia including its political struggle for independence. Highly recommended.

Not the best museum visited but well worth a visit if you visit Livinstone. You get a much better insight of Zambia from Peter Jones on Tge Royl Livingstone Express Steam Train
