Review of Owela Museum

Owela Museum
Ranked #17 of 54 things to do in Windhoek
Attraction details
Reviewed May 5, 2013

I wouldn't say Owela Museum doesn't have an interesting display, but exhibits are old and "worn out". I wouldn't say my visit was not an informative and educational, just the presentation lacks fresh touch and dusting-off. Otherwise, although I rated Owela Museum "poor" due to expired exhibits, it is, for lack of anything else, a source of historical input about Namibia.

Want to understand teh human history and tribal cultures before heading out on a tour of the country? Then head here. It may seem a little quaint if you are sued to seeing the modern US or European museums, but this place is packed full of really interesting information and items. Appreciate it for what it is - a record and, in part, celebration of the rich cultural diversity of Namibia.

The Owela Museum host great displays of Namibia's people, animals, cultures and traditions. The owela game is often played outside the museum and makes for a great mingling opportunity.
