Interesting and worth the visit
Oct. 2019
It was amazing to see the Jewish history of this small city in a small country on a huge continent. It made me proud of my heritage.

Enjoyable hour spent

A lot of steam trains from early 1900s and a small Jewish museum which documents the Jewish families that lived here.
A nice hour spent here.

Will not go on about the museum - yet again - see separate review - but the Jewish museum is on the same site - it offers a fascinating insight into the Zambian Jewish community - and it gives something for the non-train enthusiasts do - if there are any!!!

Disappointing
Nov. 2018 • Couples
With a $15 entrance fee, I expected to get a little more. We were asked if we wanted a guide and told it didn't cost much more. We decided to get the guide but he didn't add to the experience and even seemed a bit impatient about us reading the displays. Unless you are really into trains, I would not recommend.

the museum is very informative as it tells you a lot about the history of Livingstonia and its jewish population and the history of the railway.

Worth a visit

We visited the morning we left Livingstone and really liked looking around. The Jewish museum and history is fascinating and very educational. Helped add to the perspective on the early settlers and development of Zambia and the Livingstone area. Glad we stopped in.

Jewish museum was very interesting. Train museum had some educational aspects that filled in some gaps of our information but was very tired in presentation

Jewish museum good, not the railway musuem
Jul. 2018 • Couples
For a region with such a rich railway history this was super disappointing and mostly a sawmill railway history. The exhibits are in poor condition mostly.
The Jewish museum was really well presented and very interesting - you need to read quite a bit, but good photos too.

Went there as part of Livingstone Expeience

The history of Jews in Livingstone is well portrayed but is very limited to the history of Livingstone. We were told there is nw only one Jewish Lady living in Livingstone in 2018 which is most unusual to learn

Locos and culture

My friend is a huge steam railway fanatic and he was in his element at the railway museum.He had plenty of time to examine the locos in detail and to talk to some of the engineers and the guide was very helpful. Seeing the earliest cars, pushed to the Falls by workers was sobering as was some of the information in the Jewish Museum. Well worth a visit.
