Cape Cross Lodge Museum


Cape Cross Lodge Museum is situated within the Cape Cross Lodge. It welcomes all types of groups, even educational groups. The new management started in October 2011 by Nadine Downing and her mother, Connie – two renowned Namibian artists. After doing research about the history and its surroundings, Nadine and Connie established the museum at the lodge. Our museum is open to the public as well as in-house guests.

Discover the relics that weave the tapestry of the past. Visitors can buy souvenirs, postcards, small mementos and also the history of Cape Cross in book form.  Torpedo bottles, canon ball or the inner ear of a whale can all be found alongside yesteryears treasures left behind by the pioneers who survived the harsh conditions of the Namib, to build the first ever narrow gauge railway line in Namibia, to assist them with harvesting fossil guano deposits. 120km north of Swakopmund, you will discover the maritime achievements of Diego cao and learn more about this brave Portuguese who set sail to reach our shores in 1486.

On-site we have the lodge, that has 18 sea-view standard suites with two sea-view semi-suites. They offer en-suite bathrooms and breath-taking panormatic views onto the ocean. Four units are family friendly and six units are wheelchair accessible.
