This museum was truly fascinating for its marvelous diverse collection of everything Lüderitz and everything Namibia. You'll find everything from minerals to fish to bird eggs to German colonial history to diamonds. Small museums like this are increasingly rare and definitely worth a visit!

This museum might be small, but it's stuffed with interesting details and curios. Most of the text is in German.

It is only open from 3.30 to 5 in the afternoons but is definitely worth a visit. It is an amazingly eclectic mixture of old photos, relics, stuffed wildlife and everything in between and gives a wonderful picture of this fascinating and unique town.

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 Very out of date exhibits.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?..

Not the best and not the worst. Can't say they had anything really special or that it was different than any other museum we visited in Namibia. Was pretty small and met friendlier people on our trip (and I'm not meaning the guard and cleaning...More

I don't think this place has seen any new energy since it's opening in the mid 1970's Displays are historically accurate and that's about it. As dusty and boring as the lady taking your money at the door.

This rather dilapidated building is only open for short durations and appears to be manned by octogenarian volunteers. The original curator is long gone and the displays look like no one has tended them since. The photo archive suspended on the wall is well worth...More

This museum is not to be missed, each will take their own view but it is a quintessential part of the Luderitz experience.....
