Swakopmund Museum

The Swakopmund Museum was founded in 1951 by the dentist Dr. Alfons Weber. It is the largest privately run museum in Namibia. Here you can find various types of indigenous plants, animals, minerals, an archaeological exhibition, the transport system of old days and a variety of cultural historical objects. The educational exhibition “People of Namibia” focuses on the traditional heritage of different ethnic groups of Namibia.

The museum shop offers a large variety of books, postcards and souvenirs. You can buy and send your postcards from the historical post box in the Museum!

Interesting local videos are shown at the Swakopmund Museum upon request between 11:00 and 13:00. We also have educational videos available. Alongside the German documentary about Swakopmund (“Swakopmund 1892-1915” by Immo Böhlke) we show the film “South West Africa in pre-colonial days” and the natural history film “The Namib Desert Coast”.

The Museum is situated between the lighthouse and the beach. It is open daily from 10h00 to 17h00.
