Windhoek Namibia Museums
It is easy to bypass museums across the country to explore and travel, but if you have a few hours to spare, you should visit these fascinating museums. For motorists there is also the traditional Nama House and the Herero Homestead to visit, and for those who drive you can also head straight to the Namibian Museum of Natural History in the capital. The Wind Hoek Museum offers hundreds of years of geological history, dinosaurs and some of the traditional houses or the Herero homelands.
The Museum of Local History in the town of Grootfontein houses a diverse collection of artifacts. Other museums worth a visit in Windhoek are the Namibian Natural History Museum, the Wind Hoek Museum and the National Museum.
This natural science museum houses a large collection of fossils, fossils and animal fossils from around the world, as well as fossils from Namibia. The rock engravings of Twyfelfontein, which are a highlight of every visit to Namibia, are not old, but simply wonderful. A fascinating fossil exhibition surrounds the dinosaur exhibit at the museum and stands in front of a painting by Christine Marais, set against the stylish, colorful and descriptive background that lines the walls.
This old fortress over Windhoek dates back to 1890 and is both a national monument and a museum. Opened in the early 20th century as part of the Namibian struggle for independence, this museum houses a large collection of historical artifacts related to independence and struggle.
In front of the museum there is a genocide memorial, which commemorates the atrocities committed by German troops against the native Namibians at the beginning of the 20th century. The museum houses a large collection of historical artefacts from the Namibian independence struggle, such as the Sam Hluhluwe - Nkomo statue and the Windhoek National Museum, as well as a number of other artifacts. The museums offer a range of cultural and historical objects, from historical statues to historical documents and the National Museum. In the museums you will find large collections of historical and cultural artifacts, such as the Natural History Museum, a national monument, and a number of museum exhibitions, among others.
The second part of the museum is worth a visit to learn more about the history of the Namibian Natural History Museum and a number of other museum pieces. For example, an extinct elephant from Zoo Park on Independence Avenue and an exhibit about the Welwitschia (pronounced Welwitzia) park were excavated.
The museum was renamed the State Museum in 1957 and was again controlled by the Ministry of Education in Pretoria in the 1970s. In 1995 it became known as the National Museum of Namibia and in 2005 as the Namibian Natural History Museum (NNM), the largest museum of its kind in South Africa. The museum is at the top of the list of museums in Africa with the highest number of visitors per year. There is a large collection of rocks, minerals and fossils found in Namiba, but decisions about the museum are often made by individuals living thousands of kilometres away, which greatly hampers ongoing work.
Many of the exhibits from the Old Festivals were transferred to the Independence Museum, which deals with the history of Namibia's independence and the struggle for independence from South Africa in the 1950s and 1960s. The Independence Memorial Museum will be built on an existing historical structure and is scheduled to open next year. It will house the National Museum, which will be dedicated to Namibian independence.
Other museums worth a visit in Windhoek are the National Museum of Namibia, the Namibian Independence Museum and the South African Museum. The most impressive building in Windhoek is the Namibian Independence Museum, which is housed in one of the largest buildings in the city with a capacity of 1.5 million square metres.
The museum is flanked by the Sam Nujoma statue and the Genocide statue, also erected by Mansudae. The museum houses the National Museum of Namibia, the Namibian Independence Museum, the South African Museum and the South Africa Museum.
The building in which the National Museum is located, the old German fortress, which dates back to 1890, is also interesting. It houses a number of historic buildings, including the Namibian Independence Museum and the South African Museum.
The remarkable achievements of the Namibian National Museum are rooted in the efforts of those who have supported the museum since its foundation at its current location. The museum has been known as the Southwest Africa Museum since the years when it was a museum for janitors, and there was a time when the janitors of this museum acted under the direction of Dr. J.C. B. M. Kowalski, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Cape Town. Moreover, its educational programmes are active at national level, and the availability of adequate buildings and facilities has improved its infrastructure. Most importantly, the financial administration has put the financial base on a solid footing and what keeps it going is the support of its donors, in particular the Namibian Independence Museum and the South African Museum. There were several years during the 1990s and early 2000s when a group of students from the College of Arts and Sciences of South Africa (CACSA) acted as supervisors.
