Nakambale museum, Oshana Region, Namibia


3.5 (6 reviews) Spent 1-2 hours Ranking #2 in Ondangwa Historic Sites • Missions • Churches & Cathedrals

Very interesting piece of history

The Nakambale Museum is situated in the former Finnish Missionary station Olukonda close to the town Ondangwa in the north of Namibia. The Museum was named after the Finnish missionary Martti Rautanen, whose nick name was „Nakambale“ . Rautanen became missionary in 1880 shortly after the missionary station was founded. He initiated the building of a church and a missionary house. Both buildings still exist.

    A must see for Finns!
    We stopped here to check out the first Finnish missionary station in Namibia. It’s well kept and there are lots of interesting photos with good explanations. Staff are super friendly (thanks Matta) and there’s a nice gift shop where you can support local crafts people. If you are in the area, go take a look. The original church is still there and it’s a pretty area.
