Visited the museum for the first time and loved learning more about Ndola and the Copperbelt. There are not as many artefacts as they all seem to have been moved elsewhere but the store is definitely the best highlight as it sells art and ornamental decor at great prices and for great quality. Would definitely recommend.

Small gift shop selling malachite jewellery, traditional crafts and copper bracelets. The museum is small but there are interesting exhibits and I was especially intrigued by the curator's comments. Worth a visit just for these!

This is an excellent place to visit but little is being done to advertise it, a few people from Ndola know about this place and little is being done to maintain the place. This is a good place for educational institutions to visit and families

If you find yourself in Ndola and have some time on your hands, then pop in here. Don't go out of your way, but the museum will detain you for a perfectly pleasant half hour, after all there is not much else to do in town!

Even though the Copperbelt Museum is small and somewhat out-dated, it is still an interesting place to visit. I especially liked the exhibit of children's toys, made by the local children of the Copperbelt out of wire, metal, fabric, string and other common items.

Our friends from Sweden were able to purchase Souvenirs to take back home with them. It is in this place that our friends from Sweden learnt about our Dirverse Zambian Culture and its friendly people. This is absolutely a memorable time for me as a youth.

Having visited the Copperbelt several times, we were excited to have time to visit the Copperbelt Museum. They have a large variety of displays about life in that area, not just about copper. The first floor deals primarily with the geological aspects and the second floor has more about other parts of the life of the area, including toys made... More
