Livingstone’s legacy lives on

THE life and achievements of one of Scotland’s most famous explorers are the focus of Dr Livingstone, I Presume?, which opens at the National Museum of Scotland tomorrow.

Raising the curtain on a national celebration of the 200th anniversary of Livingstone’s birth, the exhibition of around 100 objects draws together a wide range of artefacts, documents and artworks with a personal connection to Livingstone in one place for the first time. The exhibition traces his life story from working in a cotton mill to studying medicine and divinity and becoming a missionary in Africa.

Dr Livingstone, I Presume?, National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Friday-7 April, 10am-5pm, free
