“Arawak & Caribe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The museum traced the history of Aruba prior to the arrival of the Europeans. Well worth a visit for a couple of hours.

“visit to the museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The exhibits were informative about early Arubian culture. Not a guided tour, so you can take your time to read and take pictures along the way. Located a easy walk from the bus terminal in downtown. It is very small and for the time of our visit they didn´t have any writen information in english or spanish, but anyway is a good place to know.

“A LITTLE HISTORY OF ARUBA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We enjoyed this museum very much. The exhibits were interesting and informative about early Arubian culture. Small entrance fee and was worth the price. Not a guided tour, so you can take your time to read and take pictures along the way. Located a easy walk from the bus terminal in downtown.
