Every human being should visit this museum! For over 300 years, Curacao was the hub of the slave trade for the Americas, European colonies, Brazil, etc. Kidnapped African women, men and children were shackled and "shipped" to Curacao,a brutal 2-month journey, where they were separated...More

We had a very knowledgeable guide but it was a bit boring and history we've learned about over the years.

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

The location is beautiful and charming. The section of the museum on slavery is heart wrenching. The garden in the back offers a good place for reflection after such an emotional visit. Artifacts in the collection are fascinating as well. Our children (9 and 12)...More

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.
