A rainy day activity - this was very interesting and gave you some insight of this island in days gone by. There was furniture made from mahogany that was absolutely gorgeous. There was an instrument in the back that looked like a loom of some sort, but found out that it was an organ of sorts, but it played bells,... More

Stopped at this sweet little museum in a former hospital building while on an excursion from a cruise ship. Interesting history and a nice variety of antiques to be seen. I was amazed to hear that the kitchen was painted in polka dots to discourage the flies!

Built in an old mansion this museum is pretty interesting. When I went it was actually free, which surprised me because I thought in fact there was a charge. Anyway it's worth a visit. There are paintings in the galleries as well as historical items and furniture. For me the "Snip" Aircraft which had it's own little pavilion in the... More

Loved this little museum which gave an insight into Curacao's past. I was really interested in the kitchen area and it was very reminiscent of museums in England that have Victorian kitchens with washing dollies and such but none painted deep red with large white polka dots. There were some interesting reasons why this was but I won't spoil your... More

We went here on a tour we purchased while on a cruise ship. It was a very interesting view into curacaos past. Our tour guide was great explaining many of the pieces and the islands history.

We tour the museum as part of our cruise tour. The small museum had a fascinating look into the past relics of the town. The music devise that rang the bells was quite unique. The garden were very interesting for us gardeners on the tour.

The beautiful Dutch buildings house a world class museum depicting the West African beginnings of the slave trade and its course to the Americas.We were amazed at the good collection of Egyptian artifacts as well. There is a model of the slave quarters on the ships to give you a sense of cramped space for so many people. Great value... More

We visited this museum as part of out Curaçao Highlights Tour. The museum itself is small, but packed with wonderful art, mostly by the locals, as well as marvelous artifacts from the distant past. There's a small amount of walking involved, and the main building is not air-conditioned. There are actually two buildings and a small garden that make up... More
