Overview

The Mangazina di Rei (1824) was used by the Dutch government to store provisions for the slaves. This second oldest stone building on Bonaire now forms part of our Cultural Park where visitors can see, feel & taste the culture of Bonaire. A guided tour includes history to experience, instruments to play, great views to enjoy and a traditional beverage that's worth to taste.A fascinating way to soak the local culture. You will never forget it!

A humble, historical & very informative stop to learn about Bonaire's people and history. Don't expect the Met...this attraction has simple but interesting exhibits. Give it a go!

Visited the park while on an excursion with the cruise line. Well worth it, nice scenery, the small store allows you to stretch your legs, and try tequila made out of cactus 🌵 Actually a very good experience the excursion and the tequila!

These folks do a wonderful job of preserving and demonstrating Bonairian history and culture. They have a big event last Saturday of each month with craft and food vendors... Outstanding!
