Visit the Museum of Malawi
Established as the Museum of Malawi in 1957, the museum is a historical, cultural, and research centre. This museum preserves and exhibits artefacts that tell the history and culture of Malawi and its people. Situated along the Chipembere Highway, a few metres from Chichiri Shopping Mall, the Museum of Malawi – also known as Chichiri Museum – is a place where visitors see and learn about the Iron Age, Malawi’s military history, traditional medicine, jewellery, currency, early farming tools, and traditional dancing apparels. There is also an exhibition about Malawi’s involvement in the slave trade. Traditional dances, such as Gule Wamkulu, Beni and Malipenga, are performed for guests daily. Visiting Blantyre city will be a worthy endeavour if the destination is Chichiri Museum where Malawi’s gems are kept.
