  • First off, it's free! Which is amazing given how much this museum has to offer. I learned so much about Aruba and its diverse history.

  • Aruba foi colonizada pela Holanda, Oranjestad é chrmosa e onde atracam os Cruzeiros, além claro de ser banhado pelo mar do Caribe. Achei incrívelq os locais falam méda de quatro línguas: Holandês, Inglês, espanhol e Papiamento (ou Papiamentu é uma língua crioula e é a principal língua falada nas ilhas caribenhas de Aruba, Curaçao e Bonaire. Recentemente, ganhou o status de língua oficial nas três ilhas) Povo agradável, cidade tranquila, vale a pena
