Fodor's Review

Literally the "old fort," the oldest existing building in Windhoek (1890) once garrisoned the first contingent of German colonial troops. Now this somewhat decrepit edifice serves as the National Museum's historical display center, with exhibits from the colonial and postcolonial periods, including numerous military items and an interesting section on Namibia's first democratic election and important patriots of the Namibian revolution. A somewhat flashier exhibit on Namibian rock compiled in cooperation with the University of Cologne is the most recent addition.
