The David Livingstone Birthplace Museum is a biographical museum in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire, Scotland, dedicated to the life and work of the explorer and missionary David Livingstone. The museum is operated by the David Livingstone Trust and is housed in a category A listed building often referred to as Shuttle Row. The museum rests on the grounds of the David Livingstone Birthplace, which contains historic grounds as well as the museum.
It is located in the former textile mill buildings which once housed 24 families including Livingstone's, and where he was born on 19 March 1813.

Went there to a Christmas fayre selling local arts & crafts. There was a display of Irish dancing which I enjoyed watching. I went into the centre restaurant where I enjoyed a lovely bowl of excellent home made soup which was reasonably priced. It was good to look around the shop which sold items about the Scottish African explorer David Livingstone. I bought myself a warm scarf as it was very frosty outside. If you enjoy history then you will enjoy a visit to the David Livingstone Centre in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The Park's facilities are closed at the moment as it's going through major renovation. Although you can still visit the park grounds for a lovely walk.
