The official opening of the museum took place in 1974, when it became one of the National Museums of Zambia run by the National Museums Board of Zambia. As a collection, however, its history dates back to the 1940s when the late catholic priest, Father Jean Jaques Corbeil from Canada, came to do missionary work as a white father in 1943. Over the years, Father Corbeil collected cultural artefacts from the northern part of Zambia for study and posterity.
