The entrance fee is free. You can easily spend two hours in here. Really well explained the discovery of Aruba, its roots and culture. Very picturesque building front. It's located in Downtown Aruba close to Zara's store. I loved it!

Entrance is free, staff is very nice, and the exhibits are nicely presented. Only takes 30-45 minutes to get through but is a nice little stop on a hot day.
