David Livingstone Birthplace Museum is Highly Commended at this year's Museums + Heritage Awards


We're thrilled to announce that the David Livingstone Birthplace museum has been Highly Commended for best Permanent Exhibition of the Year at the Museums + Heritage Awards 2022. The award category celebrates innovative design and interpretation, with particular attention on the impact that the exhibition has had on the overall heritage attraction.

We worked with the David Livingstone Trust to redevelop, reinterpret and revive the David Livingstone Birthplace museum. Located in the former textile mill where he was born, the renewed museum is a place to be inspired by Livingstone, to learn about the place, people and experiences that shaped him and, most importantly, to form your own opinion on his life, his legacy and his role in the British empire.
