There is a lot to see here and read about. It explains the culture of the place and area, but also you get a chance to artifacts from the Middle East and Africa.

If you are interested in the history of Curacao, this is the place that you must visit. If you love history, this is a place that you must visit. Guided tours are available to take you through the spectacular collection of material and artifacts.

It is also know as the "Slave Museum" as it is focused on the history of slavery. Each exhibit piece has a plaque next to it with a description of the item and/or the history surrounding the item. It takes a while to read but...More

Excellent walk through history but at the same time quite sad. We walked through in 2 hours and thankfully that was a day when there were no cruise ships in port. There is much to read and digest and would highly recommend

It was a really interesting museum, but I felt like it was glossed over that the Arawaks (the original natives of the island) were taken from the island by the Spanish and enslaved. The focus was purely on African slaves in the museum. I very...More

Exploring Curacao - our (long) triplog (2 Replies)
In April of 2005, my husband and I spent a little over a week in Curacao and fell in love with the island. We're sure to be back (I personally am ready to move)! We're in our late 30s and love to really explore our destinations. Here's how we spent the week in Curacao: Day 1 - We arrived in the early afternoon, picked up our jeep at the airport, did a little driving around Willemstad getting our bearings, and then drove out to Habitat Curacao, our home base for the first 5 nights. We were...More

I forgot to note that on Day 7, one of the things we did was drive out to the Seaquarium. It was nice enough, and the turtles were great, but I would say that a couple of hours here is plenty. On a future trip, I wouldn't be in a big hurry to get back to the Seaquarium.

Curacao Vacation Report (5 Replies)
We were in Curacao in June. We stayed at the Blue Bay resort and rented a car from Just Drive Curacao Car Rental. Renting a car is actually a must to get around in Curacao. The location of Blue Bay resort is perfect, 5 min from the Centrum supermarket about 10 to the airport and Willemstad. The resort itself is amazing, golf course, own beach and employees were very friendly. We spend 3 days at the west end, visited the shete/boca national park, Casbou beach were we did some snorkeling...More

Coffee and Cuban Cigars (0 Replies)
Yes...in Curacao you can find it in Otrobanda, in front of the Ferry. There are some shops with real Cuban Cigars but the less expensive place I found was KubaKor. When you visit the Kura Hulanda Museum (really impressive!!!!), you can get that place because it is very near. Have coffee and listening to Cuban music. Enjoy!!!
