Tsumeb Museum: This is at the eastern end of the Main Street.
The majority of self drive tourists don't know about the Museum and
pass it by, and it really is a 'Must See'. This is where you can see some of the Kaiser's Cannons
that were recovered from
Lake Otjikoto and refurbished by the
Old TCL Mine. There is
also an excellent mineral sample collection from the
TCL MIne De Wet Shaft plus many
other items of interest.
Recommended pre-bookings for the guided tour. . The cave is not
'tourist friendly', so be prepared for some rock hopping. Not for
the Claustrophobic and good boots are a must.
