This had a lot of information, with much of it very sobering, but the exhibits were a hodge podge of artifacts, both very old and some relatively recent. Overall, it was an absorbing 2 hours.

Just a short walk away from Queen Emma bridge, you will find Kura Hulanda Museum. The museum has some very interesting artifacts that uncover the journey of Africans to Curacao during the slave trade. Very easy to walk through on your own but I would...More

The museum is very intereting to visit. The history of Curacao and slavery is very well documented,also but this gives the visitor some creepy moments on the way through.

The facts this museum shows are important knowledge and thus important to know. Especially for new generations. However the way it’s presented is not the right way to reach those generations. The museum presents a lot of text and items without telling a (chronological) story....More

This museum is not only very informative on African culture but it also includes very touching sections detailing the horrors of slave trade. Recommend to everyone so we would never forget.
