Several peices of period furniture, housewares, art work, etc. Was surprised to find that this building is not air conditioned in order to protect the items. Many of the metal peices are rather rusted. We only had an hour before closing and so rushed through...More

Nice place to get a glimpse of furnishings and life from the 1700s/1800s. Nothing really surprising though. The airplane cockpit for the first KLM transatlantic flight was cool.

Small but offers a good feel for the landhuis history of the island....lovely room settings of historic mahogany furniture. Also interesting galleries of local art, mostly self-taught but representational of the island. For both aviation enthusiasts, and even those of us who just fly as...More

The antiques and artifacts are great to view. You pay a meager 10 dollars US to enter. There is no guided tour which disappointed me thus no good explanation about the island and its history. The laminated handout gave basic information. You can walk through...More

This is a quick visit but a nice one for a little history. I just did not like the minimal lighting at the lower level.

Museum is small. Tour takes 30 minutes to complete. Great history of Curacao. First dutch airline cockpit is available to view in the garden house.
