If you come with expectations reasonably lowered, you may enjoy this small, neglected museum. It’s a good way to kill an hour if you’re into taxidermy; exhibits of stuffed animals sit between those on precolonial and colonial history – it’s curious how there is next to no mention of the San, Botswana’s first inhabitants. In the art gallery section, there’s a permanent collection of traditional and modern African and European art.
