Owela meseum, this is interesting places that you can enjoy due to the history of the platform. I recommend it ad the best of all ages and abilities and it got nice views of the nurture conservation area. It teaches you how's the Namibian, people they were living and survival.
Had fun, with a friend. They have really gone an extra mile to make the place and everything about it real life. They have statues made from foam and they look so real, also collected original tools used by our people in the back days. I'm a Kavango and I should say I was quiet impressed with my tribes display... 更多
This is a museum which gives you a good overview on Namibia's recent history and the independence struggle in particular. However it gives a single sided perspective. There are also mistakes in the paintings. An Impala plane for example was not in the Cassinga attack.
There are very few museum in Central Windhoek, and the owela, 10 minutes walking on the same street than the national Museum, IT'S A NICE OPTION. The building is not pretty and has a poor condition. inside information has information about some animals and the different ethnic groups of the country.
I really enjoyed my visit to this museum, the displays were informative and interesting. I particularly enjoyed reading about the history of the elephant's evolution, and the construction of the Nama huts. There are also some shocking infographics about the decline of the rhino and cheetah across the African continent. Sure some of the dioramas are old (some over 50... 更多
I learned a lot from almost three hours in this museum, and I still did not read everything. Did you know that cheetahs originated in Mexico more than 4 million years ago? The section on ethnic minorities in Namibia was particularly engaging and better presented than the section on natural history. All texts were in good English, and mostly readable,... 更多
It is worth to visit this museum, which gives in-sigths in the traditional lives of different ethnic groups in Namibia as well as on nature. The display is however a bit messy.
I visited this museum recently for the fourth time. Being a teacher, I took my class there every year. This time I was sadly disappointed, as half of the museum had broken lights which meant that we could not even go into that section. According to the lady who works there, the lights had been out for a couple of... 更多
Despite an rather old fashioned air in part, the ethnographic displays were useful displays of Namibia's peoples and traditional society. The natural history side also looked a bit dated but hard to say as the lights were not working. Namibia and ithe museums in its capital deserve a bit more investment and the institution needs to convey a sense of... 更多
Really interesting museum in Windhoek all about the indigenous communities such as the San, Herero, Himba and Nama. Lots of fascinating information - sometimes a bit too much to take in but it's well presented. Like a previous viewer, we found the plaster casting of human beings shocking but it was important to learn how terribly they had been treated.... 更多
