“Not what I really expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The museum was really just so and so. Not much to see. If you have an hour or so to kill, go, but otherwise it can be skipped.

“Very interesting and worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

The museum is located across the bridge, by the vendors selling their fish/produce from Venezuela. The museum offers a complete history of Curacao. This can be toured in an hour, but you could easily spend several hours viewing the various items collected from their waters. Note: There is also a 1/2 hour video that is very good to watch.

“Nice museum if you like history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We enjoyed the history and exhibits in the rehabilitated building. Younger kids and teens might find it boring.

“Great Museum but no Harbor Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

If you are interested in the harbor tour, call before you go. It was cancelled the day I went because enough people did not sign up.
