  • Impressive, nice museum of Swakopmund and Namibian history. You can learn a lot about the city, region, its culture, traditions and history. Many real historic items to see. Worth visiting!

  • Friendly staff and great service. Ice-cold beer 🍺 a must. Always something lite te eat available 😋.
  • A personal favourite place to visit for me. I love looking at all the exhibits, even though I've already seen them a hundred times. I definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in a small bit of Namibian history, cultural, archaeological and geological. Very interesting.
