The David Livingstone Birthplace re-opens in Blantyre in just over a months time on Wednesday 28th July 2021.
The extensive £9.1m renovation of the museum, cafe, shop and toilets promises to be exciting and put Blantyre firmly back on the map. As the countdown continues, here’s a sneak peak at the Birthplace room, which when this was taken was in the process of being prepared and dressed for exhibiting.
It was in this very room, that allegedly David Livingstone, the famous explorer was born on 19th March 1813. The room was proudly shown to thousands of visitors by later resident, Mrs Gilbert early in the 20th Century, long after Livingstone’s death and prior to the formation of the museum.
There is SO much to see….and the only way to see it is to buy a ticket! The David Livingstone Birthplace exhibition space will operate from April to December, with annual passes and day tickets both available.
