Fodor's Review

The largest private museum in Namibia, this old and somewhat musty building down by the lighthouse and founded in 1951, houses a surprisingly large and varied collection of items. Displays on everything from natural history, archeology, and ethnology to the German colonial period may be a bit dated in presentation, but are nonetheless informative and worth a look.
