Lonely Planet review

This small and simple museum is housed in a historic building built by the British military in 1939 and used during WWII as a surveillance post keeping tabs on the German presence in Namibia. The museum offers a few displays about the history of the Ngamiland district (the subdistrict of northwestern Botswana where the Okavango Delta is located) and some temporary exhibitions of photography, basket-weaving and art. Donations are welcome. The museum also houses the Bailey Arts Centre, which allows local artists to produce and sell baskets, screen prints, paintings and pottery, among other things.
