Dr. Livingstone, I Presume? at the National Museum of Scotland

Published: 19th September 2012 11:50
Dr Livingstone, I Presume?
Fri 23 November 2012 - Sun 7 April 2013

 

Discover the story of Scottish missionary and explorer David Livingstone, from humble beginnings to national hero and one of Scotland's most famous men.

The exhibition celebrates the bicentenary of Livingstone's birth, bringing a new focus to the man, the myth and his legacy. Discover his early life in Blantyre, Scotland, his studies in medicine and divinity and his travels in Africa.
New cutting-edge research, the museum's spectacular African collections, and a collection of Livingstone's personal possessions all help tell the story of the epic adventures that led to the rise of his celebrity in Victorian Britain.
See the tools he used as an explorer, with maps, sketches, photography and paintings from his travels. His diaries, manuscripts and clothing will also be on display, including the iconic hats worn at the famous meeting between Livingstone and Henry Morton Stanley.

Drawing on a partnership with National Museums of Malawi, the exhibition also reveals Scotland's continuing close links and associations with Malawi, where Livingstone first travelled in 1859.
