Trans-Namib Railroad Museum Reviews
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. more »
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. more »
