A sobering look at a terrible period in history. The museum does a good job at explaining slavery and putting it into context. A difficult subject but a necessary one

We took a guided tour (additional $3 pp) with a Dutch couple. The guide spoke in both Dutch and English, so it took longer and was difficult to follow. All buildings are equipped with A/C. I wish they focus more on the origin of Curacao...More

The Kura Hulanda museum is located in Otrobanda. I recommend going on the guided tour as it is very informative. Afterwards, you can revisit the parts that interests you the most. There is also a statue garden. Please go and learn history.

We were not sure what to expect from this museum, and we were quite intrigued with all of the exhibits. It provides a varied understanding of the Maafa and African contributions to Curaçao’s history. It was very emotional in certain exhibits but also very beautiful...More

A must for anyone to get a better understanding of how things were. Don't miss alley ways and the building with the cellar and the model ship. Follow the numbers of the buildings around the circle. Parking is a little tough but down the hill...More
