Both museums are part of the same $15 US entry fee, probably a bit steep in all candour. A guide took us around. There is ample written material on both museums, especially the latter. The rail cars are the best feature re the railway portion though the area’s railway history is worth reading. While thee are some items to view—like a torah, sundry gravestones or cornerstones—most of the Jewish sector focus is the original arrival of Jews as traders, eventually developing communities, building synagogues, etc, the role of several men [and some women] detailed in panels.

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.

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!!!

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.

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

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.

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
