Set between the palm trees on the popular beach promenade at The Mole the Swakopmund Museum covers a wide variety of interesting subjects. Displays range from a 27-million-year old fossil, meteorite chunks, fossilized wood and bones of early human inhabitants to Spanish coins and restored ox wagons. The People of Namibia exhibition consists of headdresses baskets amulets and interesting information on many of Namibia’s diverse cultural groups. Namibia’s flora is explained in the Emil Jensen Herbarium and the Russing Room informs visitors about the process of mining uranium. Founded in 1951 by Dr Alfons Weber the Swakopmund Museum has recently revamped its entrance area and the Alte Brauereistube is now also part of the complex. The museum is open seven days a week from 10:00 to 17:00.
