The downtown is pleasant and functional. Do see the Tsumeb Cultural Center. This is a joint project developed with support from Norway. There are reconstructed homes from various parts of Namibia. If the full plan is implemented, it will have typical homes from all major tribal groups in Namibia as well as people demonstrated the life of that group. Currently, many of the prototypical homes have been constructed, but the place is often empty. Nearby is Lake Otjikoto. Although small, it is the largest natural lake in Namibia. Off the road to Grootfontein is a turn-off for the Hoba Meteorite.
