My husband loves trains so this was a great place to spend a couple of hours. Easy to walk to and we were the only ones there.

interesting bit of history

Not really a museum as such but some interesting old engines outside. Inside there are old photos (mostly in German) showing what it was like in the 19th centrury.

A stop-off!

Lots of interesting coaches etc. on display outside of the station. Could do with a spruce up on the actual station - especially now that the Desert Express is running again.

An interesting little museum close to the railway station. Lots of rooms full of equipment and historic memorabilia from Namibia, focused on rail history. A nice way to pass an hour.

A very interesting place to walk around, specially if you are interested in railway trains and cars, etc. I loved the old Station Building.

A Quick Visit
Nov 2018 • Friends
Our tour group took a very quick tour of the railroad museum items outside the building. I would have liked to see more inside. The trains outside were interesting and well kept. Our guide had some nice stories about the use of the trains. I like it when people see value in keeping historical things around in order to educate about the past. It's worth taking the time to go see, especially if you are a train enthusiast.

Very disappointed to find the museum closed on a Saturday afternoon and Sunday. However the displays out side are well maintained and preserved. Stunning old station building in a good condition . Keep up the good work.
