This building houses a good collection of local craftspeople and an excellent variety of souvenirs. However, be sure to ask the vendor where the item was made as some of the products have been imported from South Africa, but it appears most were made in Namibia.

It is worth a visit. Prices are not expensive and we found things from many parts of the country (we made a round trip through Namibia). We could not try the cafe inside the building that it seems to be very tasteful!

Great place to shop for all sorts of souveniers before going home, including one of the best book selections if you want facts on Namibia. Fairy easy to find parking on the street below the shop.

we wanted to buy souvenirs and spend our last Namibian dollars before jetting home. This craft centre is set in an old former brewery and is full of locals selling basket ware, beading, carvings, jewellery and art. Ridiculously cheap by European standards and a great choice if items

I went to this Craft Centre regularly with visitors from Germany while working at the DHPS (1988-94). Whenever I am in Windhoek I go here again to buy my presents and have a nice chat and a good coffee. I love this craft centre in Windhoek und would highly recommend it, very friendly staff.

Lots of great crafts for sale here! I bought a few things to bring home. I also highly recommend walking around Windhoek for many more artisans selling their wares out on the streets. Street vendors will negotiate prices, artisans at the Craft Centre have fixed prices.

Well stocked, true Namibian crafts. Rather visit without children, might be bored. Nice coffee shop to relax.
