We found this museum really interesting for the quantity and quality of artworks and memorabilia, with a focus on the slavery period. Plan a visit for a couple of hours to get through the whole museum without rushing.

The museum is located in Otrabanda in Willemstad. The formerly rundown neighbourhood was carefully restored with attention to details. The museum is part of a luxury hotel - the rooms and suites are in colonial houses. The museum has a sculpture park, a small exhibition...More

This is not a large museum and if you've seen African exhibits in larger ones like the Smithsonian, you won't be terribly impressed with that part of this exhibit. Don't let that put you off. The most interesting part to us was the section that...More
