    Today the Fort houses a Museum of history. Second report, is the oldest building in Oranjestad, Aruba. I visited the building in an evening walk, as was staying nearby. In the courtyard there was a social gathering of locals. The architecture of the building is interesting. I didn't get to visit the inner part, which holds the collection, which features a collection of document relating to the past of the island. For those who are in Palm Beach or other more distant beaches may not be very interesting shift exclusively to visit the attraction, unless you're an admirer of facts or historical events. So, if pass near deserves a click of memory!

    Nice, little museum on the culture and history of Aruba. Rotating collection. Great view from top of the tower.

    My wife and I spent a few hours here after we were done eating and walking around in the area. We head some steel drum music playing so we went over there and watched the performance of the local culture and the music.
