Wow. What an amazingly well laid out little corner of time. The museum is really exciting for one who enjoys military history az well as the loads and loads of information about the mining town itself. A really enjoyable hour spent.

Visiting this museum will take about one hour. It is quite small but worth the time. It it mostly a history of the mine and the white people who benefitted from it.

Visiting this museum you became aware of the local history in a small invironment but very interresting. The museum is next to the entrance to Tsumeb and you can t miss.
