The Museums of Malawi, initially known as the Nyasaland Museum, was established through legislation in May 1957. The current museum building was constructed in 1965 at Chichiri Hill in Blantyre, using funds from the Beit Trust and the Government of Malawi.[2] The museum was opened officially in June 1966.
