The Railway museum was officially opened by Dr Kenneth Kaunda in 1987. The museum was created in dedication of preserving the Zambia’s Railway heritage.
This was also the main station for the Zambezi sawmill hence the station was built because of the high demand of timber, both locally and internationally. All operation offices where built of Timber . The main purpose of the museum is to show and educate, how the Zambezi somill existed and operated.
Besides the Railway museum is the Jewish museum. The Jewish museum is more of offering an insight to Livingstone’s Jewish community, who settled in the 1890’s through South Africa after fleeing persecution from Lithuania.
I found these two museums to be very educative as there history is something we get to read about in our academic history books. To all those who would be having a school trips, these two museums would be very ideal as they have so much history which is very applicable in our daily lives.
