Recommended Museum

 Windhoek City Museum

WCM Main



The Windhoek City Museum will introduce you to some of the places, stories and memories that give our city its unique identity. Our museum is not only a `Knowledge Bank’; it also encourages visitors to give their input and views on issues that concern us all as residents of the city. Our museum is, therefore, also a forum where people can share their different views and, perhaps, play a role in shaping the future of Namibia’s capital city. After walking around our museum we hope that you will take time to relax with a cold drink at the Jazz Café, our secret diamond hidden at the back of the building.

The museum contains six galleries with permanent displays and one gallery that is used for temporary exhibitions.
Opening Hours: 08h00-16h00 Monday to Friday
