Handover of new ablution block to the Museum

Handover of new ablution block to the Museum

Today the Museum celebrated the official handover of its new external ablution block by the contractors, that will serve the restaurant and education hall. This was part of a project funded by the Private Enterprise Programme (PEP) Zambia (now Prospero) which began in 2019. The project also involved creation of a Museum website, expansion and restocking of the crafts shop, and refurnishing of the conference room and courtyard, among other things. The main aim of the project was to improve the financial sustainability of the Museum.
