Independence Memorial museum of Windhoek, on the left 1
One of Namibia's museums and Windhoek's highest view point — showcasing the struggle for independence since the colonial era.

Some of its collection include photos, paintings, statues, weaponry and other memorabilia from the anti colonial resistance, anti apartheid movement, as well as the struggle that won Namibia's independence.

It is housed inside an 8 storey - 3 sided building, with only the top 5 floors being large enough for significant occupation. Each of these floors has a different section, accessible by a glass elevator.

The whole building provides good views of the surrounding scenery as well as the city, but the best is from the restaurant at the top.
