This museum is better than to be expected for a small town. The wildlife exhibits are extensive. The displays about World War I, a timely subject this year, tell the story largely from the standpoint of the local (German) population.
A rather disjointed collection. Old printing presses, dental tools, cameras etc. There was an interesting section on Devils Root and the modern German pharmaceutical uses as well as description of sustainable methods of harvesting of the tubers. Overall it was OK for an hour but it treaded very lightly on the apartheid and extermination of the natives that are a... 更多
This is a small museum but it is very comprehensive and very well organized. It is open from 10 am to 12:30pm, and from 3 pm until 5:30 pm.You can learn about Namibia's history, ethnology, natural sciences.
It's really recommended to visit, my kids and I had a good time here, the museum display almost every aspect of life people live here in early 19th century up to the end of German colonization.
This museum like most things in Swakopmund was a great surprise. The museum was well presented and clean. The exhibits were well documented and easy to understand. The overland trails and the history was presented very well. The gift shop was good value. A great couple of hours of history.
The museum is located on the seaside and very accessible for everybody. The entrance fee is very affordable and there is a lot to see. They have a good variety of exhibitions that cover a wide range of topics - from stones to medicine, wild animals and plants, clothes and pottery - there is something that would interest every mom,... 更多
This is my favourite place to enjoy brunch on a Saturday. We always sit outside because we have two small dogs that also enjoy the view of the beach, playground and people. The item on the menu that I like the most is the Jet Setter breakfast. A fresh roll with smoked salmon, onion and horse radish; a croissant with... 更多
Let's face it, Swakopmund is small, and there is not much to do there, so why not try a visit - and you will be surprised by the diversity of exhibits (natural history, taxidermy, history, geology, etc.) that are fairly well displayed with good labeling. An inexpensive admission fee makes your visit painless, and you will learn more about the... 更多
In the end we (myself and my two boys) were delighted we were dragged by my wife to the museum. There is an awful lot going on but it has something for everybody. Definitely a place that needs revisiting (like any museum) but even if you went in with the intention of doing the main hall only and did it... 更多
For a tourist with a serious interest in history, this museum is the crown jewel of the nation. There is nature, European settlers' history, African natives' history, and films detailing the exploration and settlement of the area. Left to my own devices, I would have stayed more than 2 hours here.
