The brand-new play park is inspired by Livingstone’s steamboat and his journeys down African rivers. Children are encouraged to set sail on their own imaginative adventures!

Exhibition – Now Open!

Filled with exciting interactive and wonderful surprises, the stunning new exhibition showcases Livingstone’s life and adventures.

Learn about the Scottish explorer, and travel with him from Scotland to Southern and Central Africa. Discover the fearsome lion and navigate the stars. Hear about the communities and people who Livingstone met and worked with, before reflecting on his legacy.
