Not worth your time. Your grandmother's house has better art and is more interesting. It's not terrible, but it is certainly not an average or good attraction.

We went to the Curacao Museum as part of a Carnival Cruise shore excursion, but I believe there is a small fee to get in. As you get off the bus you enter the compound where there are gardens with sculptures and a cannon. There is a separate building that houses the front part of the "Snip" - the 1st... More

A little hidden in a suburbs of Willemstad the amazing old building houses a wonderful museum. While entering one can find two beautiful rooms, decorated and furnished as in the older days. Like the family just left the room. Furthermore one can find some masterpieces by Willink, Toorop, Charles Eijck and Jan Sluyters, among others. In a separate building there... More

Not a big museum and as others have said seems to be a stop on the island tours that operate. We walked up from town (a good 30 minute stroll) and an option for a cool drink on arrival would have been appreciated (even if just via a water cooler). It was interesting to see the old kitchens and, to... More

I was lucky enough to do an hour tour of the Curacao museum along with other sights on the island. It was so interesting to see old colonial Dutch kitchens and bedrooms and learn about the history of this beautiful Dutch colony. There was also a large area showing modern Dutch & Curacao artists. Outside the building the small gardens... More

Nice little place but not a large 'museum'. It was a nice stop as a part of our organized tour of this amazing island.

We had a quick stop at the museum as part of an organised tour of several areas. It's quite basic but has some points of interest. It doesn't occupy for long though. A half hour stop is plenty for a look round.

This museum was included in a tour which we took while visiting Curacao on a cruise ship. It is an interesting museum and includes a section on art. There are statues and old cannon throughout the grounds outside. The grounds are well kept and attractive.

We had a private and customized tour set up by my friend from the Curacao Tourism Board. We flew in that morning, met by our tour guide and saw mostly everything on the island and left that evening back to Aruba. A customized private tour is the only way to see an island. Will be returning.
