Easy to get to if you're driving from Ndola to Kitwe and well signposted. It's the actual crash site and the museum has some interesting information. The guide was useful too.

The sevice to the public is excellent. The explanation about the history of Dag Hammarskjoeld well told. The display of information about his death and what transpired well told and is detailed. Customer service to the public very good and friendly.

The memorial itself is similar as those found everywhere. However if you are prepared to spend some time reading the boards set out in the room, the history of the Congo conflict, the crash and the Secretary General for the U.N. are detailed quite nicely.

The museums and grounds offer a great deal of information. It is a nice place to stop and visit for an hour or so.

A very tranquil place with many reminders of a significant time in history. The place is really in the middle of nowhere, so you need either your own vehicle or a guided tour.

It's probably nice to say you have been there, but $15 is absurd. There is not much to see, if it was cheaper or free it might be worth the visit.

This is an old memorial that few people are aware of. Worth visiting albeit a bit run down nowadays.
