Covers a wide history and has some interesting displays. Some of the displays (e.g. rifles) are a bit crowded and some of the details are lost. Quite a pity.

A really well thought-out and arranged museum. Spotlessly clean, and well-labelled - though mostly only for German-speakers. However the very helpful part-time curator, Mike, is there to explain in both English and Afrikaans. Well-worth a visit at an extremely modest entry fee

It's a tiny little place that takes about 20 to 30 minutes to explore in detail. It's old and probably hasn't ever changed since the German times, and that's exactly why it's charming. Seeing how little there is to do in Lüderitz, especially in the...More

The museum has some interesting facets from the region and town - but is incredibly old and in desperate need of a coat of paint and refresh. Also only open for 90min a day - be careful when you visit!

Interesting to visit but not a big draw card. Very out of date exhibits. Need to add a new section or something?..
