Lusaka National Museum

Zambia / Africa

The Lusaka National Museum covers the history and culture of the nation.  Construction began in the 1980s and it was officially opened to the public in October 1996.  While the museum was originally intended to focus on the history of Zambian Independence, its focus changed to cultural history by the time it opened.  The museum collection is preserved in storage rooms, while other heritage objects are displayed in two galleries on the ground and upper floors of the museum building.  The lower gallery is home to contemporary art highlighting the way of life of the Zambian people through paintings, sculptures, and models.  The upper gallery tells a glowing story of Zambia’s development from ancient through historic past to contemporary way of life.
