We loved this museum! A privilege to view an authentic post abolition home on curaçao, and learn about the ways of life of the island. Our tour guide Ryan was excellent and the tour was so interesting and informative. If you want to gain more of an insight into real Curaçao, this is the place to go! We went early, and the tour was just the right length of time, recommend for young families.

This was the first stop on a short tour of Curaçao and I am so thrilled I got a glimpse what life was like for the ancestors. Learned some techniques that are still used today and gained some ideas for self sustaining in times of need. If you are ever on the island, this should be a stop on your list. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Loved the wash tub song ;-).

It's an old country house that was given to the slaves on Curacao when they were free. You can see how they lived, with many people in a smaal (cool) house. The owner of this country house is born in this house. She can tell you about the way of life and all of the habits. Everyone must see this.

This is very important and interesting information. One thing that would help is to give an overview of it first. There are many interesting details, and the guides were clear and showed us as well as told us.

Our guide, Florence, was very informative and explained everything very well in both English & Spanish! The history here in Curaçao is plenty and this outdoor-oriented museum does a great job demonstrating what life was like back in the day for rural curaçao. Highly recommend. Takes about 35-45 minutes.

We were on a cruise ship excursion that stopped at this outdoor-oriented museum. It is authentic and provides genuine insight into the lives of slaves on Curacao years ago. The guides are indeed wonderful, as someone else earlier noted. Recommend a stop here.

We visited this museum on a Princess shore excursion. The guide was very good and informative. We learned a lot about catus and use of natural products. We also learned about the life of the liberated slaves.

The guide was new and was very open and friendly. She taught me a few things about cacti, kitchen utensils, history. Then we talked about her lineage which was interesting!!!

Our group was about 40 people so we were split into two groups, each with a guide. This small living history museum is laid well. We learned about the daily life of the freed slaves. Even children would enjoy this open air museum.
