Railway Museum in Livingstone boasts of being the only one of its kind in Zambia. The museum first opened its doors to the public on 12th January 1987.
The Museum in Livingstone is a glimpse of the past if you wanted to have a look at Zambia’s development of the railway industry.
Of the Zambian museums, the Railway Museum is Zambia’s only industrial museum. The historical railway relics were property of the Zambezi Sawmills Railways (ZSR) which stopped operating in 1973.
However, not everything at the Museum belonged to the Zambezi Sawmills Railways; some steam engines were once part of the copper mines on the copperbelt. This makes the historical collection at the Museum very broad and provides a good material for research on the history of the Zambian railway industry.
The Zambezi Sawmills Railways (ZSR) rail track was laid between 1924 and 1934 and was from Livingstone to Mulobezi.
When the Zambezi Sawmills became defunct in 1973, the site was declared a national monument and later in 1987, it was established as a museum.
