“Arawak & Caribe”

The museum traced the history of Aruba prior to the arrival of the Europeans. Well worth a visit for a couple of hours.

“visit to the museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

The exhibits were informative about early Arubian culture. Not a guided tour, so you can take your time to read and take pictures along the way. Located a easy walk from the bus terminal in downtown. It is very small and for the time of our visit they didn´t have any writen information in english or spanish, but anyway is a good place to know.
