Small gift shop selling malachite jewellery, traditional crafts and copper bracelets. The museum is small but there are interesting exhibits and I was especially intrigued by the curator's comments. Worth a visit just for these!

This is an excellent place to visit but little is being done to advertise it, a few people from Ndola know about this place and little is being done to maintain the place. This is a good place for educational institutions to visit and families

Even though the Copperbelt Museum is small and somewhat out-dated, it is still an interesting place to visit. I especially liked the exhibit of children's toys, made by the local children of the Copperbelt out of wire, metal, fabric, string and other common items.
