We arrived and were greeted with samples and had the opportunity to make purchases, they were out of the coffee flavour which was disappointing. I though they would have explained the making process but they didn't.

This summer, I was fortunate enough to travel with my family to Curacao for the first time. Though we only spent a day on the island, we are dreaming of travelling back soon! Our first stop on our tour was this museum, which gave us a wonderful introduction to the culture of Curacao. My favorite part was the carillon, which our tour guide happily demonstrated. The bells were beautiful! As a student learning German, the Dutch half of each sign was a challenge I felt compelled to translate. The antique furniture and replica housing on the grounds surrounding the main building was also amazing to see. Definitely a must-see for a trip to this beautiful and friendly island!

Some interesting art work but the majority of the building is not open for tours. We went on an excursion from a cruise ship so I don't know if there is a charge for admission.

This is a very small museum of island history and it's worthwhile. It's always nice to understand about the cultures of places you visit. If you're looking for glitz, this isn't probably for you.
