£3.5m lottery boost sought for Blantyre’s David Livingstone Centre
June 11 2015
The David Livingstone Centre, Blantyre, is intended to reinvigorate interest in the figure by building a new Hoskins Architects designed museum around the existing museum, located in the house where Livingstone was born.
Colin McLean, head of the Heritage Lottery Fund in Scotland, said the museum would ‘put David Livingstone's birthplace on the world's stage as a tourist destination and valuable education resource’.
Plans under consideration include creation of a treetop walkway and aerial zip slides across the River Clyde as part of a wider adventure park within the museum grounds.
