Swakopmund Museum Tours

Swakopmund Museum
History buffs will love this small museum in the heart of Namibia’s favorite coastal city. Friendly staff members greet foreign travelers and serve as knowledgeable guides through an extensive collection of rare fossils, handmade artifacts and traditional clothing installations.

Swakopmund Museum’s permanent collections extend beyond the borders of this colonial town to include prehistoric pots used by the San people, a history of Namibian transport, explanation of the once thriving diamond mining industry in the south and an informative look at the cultures and traditions that make this sparsely populated nation so unique. Visitors who spend a couple of hours exploring the Swakopmund Museum halls will leave with a better understanding not only of the city, but of the rich history and diverse people that have made Namibia a destination for world travelers.
