There are storeys of stories about David Livingstone, the famous Scottish explorer and missionary, in this birthplace museum of his life and work. Housed in Shuttle Row, a tenement which the Livingstones shared with 23 other families, this historic attraction is packed with items relating to his explorations in Africa. These include journals, letters and navigational equipment, as well as dioramas of significant events in his travels. It also gives a fascinating insight into the living and working conditions of 19th-century Scotland.
Set along the banks of the River Clyde and surrounded by stunning park land, the Birthplace museum invites you to follow Livingstone’s journey from Blantyre to Africa through our new interactive exhibition.
Children are encouraged to 'set sail' on our wonderful playground, inspired by Livingstone’s own voyages, and explore the grounds using our trails.
