It was built 100 years ah-go as the house of Damara and Namaqua Trading Company. It became a dormitory, and now serves as a military museum. There is not much to see in Swakaopmund itself. It is worth to spend a few minutes going to see the building.

It is a beautiful building on the outside and very historical. The lines of the structure are really lovely. The Swakopmund library is housed in part of this building. They actually still have card catalogues! No computers to look up stuff. A step back in time.
