Living Museum of the Damara - any opinions?

I understand that a new 'Living Museum of the Damara' opened a few months ago, near Twyfelfontein. Has anyone here been there? I've had a look at the museum website, but - although it says all the right things - I'm still not really the wiser as to whether to try to make some time to take it in. If time was unlimited, of course, I'd happily just take a chance - but our itinerary is crowded enough as it is. Is this museum a worthwhile and rewarding cultural venture, or a bit voyeuristic, or more heavily focused on selling crafts? Or.....? Any first-hand feedback would be much appreciated!

I was at Twyfelfontein a few weeks ago and happened to walk past there on the way to climb the hill behind it. There were no tourists, just 4 or 5 Damaras and other than that it looked deserted. It didn't look like anything special.
