The Lusaka National Museum is a museum located in Lusaka, Zambia, covering the history and culture of the nation.

History[edit]

The Lusaka National Museum is the latest entry into the directory of museums in the country. It officially opened its doors to the public in October 1996. The museum has already proved to be an attractive tourist resort and active research and educational institution.

Galleries[edit]

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. The children's corner is yet another display attraction on the upper floor.

Education Services[edit]

The Education Department provides education services to schools, colleges and other interest groups on various museum-related subjects through video shows, specially designed programs and gallery tours. Also on offer are demonstrations on art of traditional pottery and publications.
