The Museum really tells you and shows you all ways and types of Slavery and as well how and where...
I liked the the Museum at any stage.
The only thing they may need to do is to update some reading materials because they seen a bit of age...

But otherwise brilliant place to see

We really appreciated our time at the Kura Hulanda Museum. The collection of artifacts and displays was fantastic. We learned so much, both good and bad about history. This is a great way to spend an afternoon. You wont regret it.

This is the most unusual museum and owner that I have every come across. Jacob Derrek is a most unusual man and this museum takes you from the birth of the 3 Abrahamic religions thru the slave trade on the island. There are 70 some buildings that are part of this area but the museum is housed in only a few. For history and religious buffs, this is not to miss and for island history and a fascinating local person, the same.

A unique part of Otrobanda, Willemstad. Restored to high standard, it is part hotel, part museum. Very interesting.

It was $10 per person. Some artifacts, pictures, newspaper clippings. Informative. A series of about 6 buildings that you walk through. Museum is hidden and hard to find. We had to ask a local.It is not over the bridge, the opposite way of Rif Fort. Uncomfortable if its hot out, only a few air conditioned rooms
