A great collection of items: plants, animals, minerals, stones, art, history of the place, fossils, technology. A great option for the unpredictable Swakopmund weather. Photography is allowed if you pay an extra amount.
Worth visiting, with a wide range of items on show from crystals to cameras , archeology to apothecary. Although slightly time-worn, it provides a good insight into the diversity of Namibian history, geology, peoples and natursl diversity.
