Learn more about the Ovaherero people.
To document and preserve the rich heritage of the Ovaherero people, a museum has been built next to the Cultural Village.
The museum depicts the Ovaherero’s cultural history through displays, statues, audio-visual presentations and artefacts. It also documents their history, migration journeys and wars and its impact on this community’s leadership, political, economic, social and cultural spheres.
The museum preserves the equipment, weapons and tools which the Ovahereros used in their hunts, food preparation and their daily living dating from the 19th centure to date.
