One of Namibia's museums, showcasing a history of Tsumeb — a small mining town that became popular at the start of the 20th century.

Some of its exhibits include transportation methods, photos and artifacts about its people, mining history, minerals and weapons used in past wars — some of which were recovered from lake Otjikoto nearby, after retreating German soldiers dumped them there during world war I.

Still within the lake are several canons and a safe rumoured to contain six million gold marks.
