Our new exhibition tells the story of David Livingstone’s life, from birth to death.
Visitors will see where David was born, learn about his humble beginnings working as a child labourer at Blantyre Works Mill, and see how his love of learning led him to train as a missionary-doctor.
The exhibition then follows Livingstone’s journey from Scotland to Southern Africa.
Through an immersive display, visitors will experience the sights and sounds that Livingstone himself experienced when he travelled throughout Southern and Central Africa.
The exhibition concludes by examining and questioning the legacy Livingstone left behind through interactive displays and an animation of our very own Pilkington Jackson Tableaux.
David Livingstone Birthplace is currently closed during refurbishment work.
David Livingstone Birthplace is normally open 10:00-17:00 each weekday.
