  • Great Museum if you want to get a good overview of Zambia and its recent history in 1 to 2 hours. The guides are most enthusiastic and good company through the journey of time. The ground floor has a Kenneth Kaunda exhibition, which gives a good overview of this iconic man's life and influence on Zambia
  • very sweet and kind people my fav part was the history and very nice art when you enter
