Air conditioned! Need I say more in August? Yes, well it is also interesting - better than reading the pages in the little guidebooks this 3 story museum tells the history of Curaco from a maritime point of view - which is basically most of its history. We got a quick but good guided tour of the main floor, walked and read all the exhibits, and watched the movie - definitely watch the movie if you want the whole picture of the history of the harbor. I agree with another reviewer that more about how the pontoon bridge works would be good. Right now there is a very nice mult media art exhibit celebrating 150 years since slavery was abolished - some of the pieces were excellent. Seeing the exhibits that showed how the building itself had deteriorated and was restored was great - these things take time, dedication and energy. You don't just have to be interested in boats and shipping to enjoy this history lesson. Did I say it was cool in there? And just over the bridge from the floating market.
