The gallery takes the visitor on a fascinating journey through the history of Zambia from 1550 to 2001. The exhibition pays attention to the earliest historical evidence, focusing on the origins of the people in Zambia, early chiefdoms and Kingdoms, early contacts with the people of the outside world, European explorations and missionary activities in Zambia.
The Gallery presents the story of Dr David Livingstone. The main themes include Livingstone's early life, his missionary work at Khuruman, his early travels to Lake Ngami and the upper Zambezi River, his Trans-African journey on which he became the first white man to see the Falls known to the local people as Musi-oa-Tunya or Shuungu-na-mutitima, which he named "Victoria Falls".
