This is the "OMEG Haus", a Namibian historic monument. It is the former goods shed of the Otavi-Bahn, that connected the copper mines of Tsumeb to Swakopmund. OMEG stands for "Otavi-Minen- und Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft", the company than ran the train line. Next to the OMEG-Haus is an open air museum (the old train station), and a small botanical garden where some indigenous plants can be found. The OMEG-Haus can be found on the main Sam Nujoma Avenue (former Kaiser-Wilhelm-Strasse).
