The main attraction at the museum is the Khorab room which exhibits cannons and other artifacts recovered from Lake Otjikoto. The lake was turned into somewhat an underwater museum in 1915.

    Approximately 30 cannons and 4500 boxes of ammunition were thrown into the lake which is 24km west of town. The lake is still a very popular site in itself due to the artifacts that it still contains.
