Hop on a 4x4 all-terrain vehicle and explore Aruba’s north coast on this half-day guided tour. Get a little dirty as you ride along the rugged back roads, heading to the island’s seaside bluffs and beaches. Plus visit top sights such as the Alto Vista Chapel before taking a refreshing swim in the pool.

Mrs H and I spend about an hour here (it’s free) and I must say that it was a great hour spent. No political correctness, no victims decried about. Just matter of fact information about the different eras of Aruba’s history. Artifacts abounded everywhere, which is what a museum should be all about. Well worth it if you want an adult version of the local history.

Informative and not too large a place to visit. Admission was free and I think I was the only visitor at this time. Great as I wanted to avoid crowds for obvious reasons.

We had been trying to visit this museum for 2 years! According to the curator of the Museum of Industry it was closed due to a serious issue with their AC. Finally this year it was open. The admission was free which was great. It’s not huge but does a fine job telling the story of the Arawak people. However it didn’t feel as Aruba centric as some of the other museums we visited. This was more of an overview of the indigenous people of the caribbean and south america. Overall though, it was very good and great way to kill some time if you need a break from the beach.

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!
