    A former military quarantine building in which on a limited scale, the period rooms of the colonial past. There are several paintings from the early 20th century noteworthy is the extensive presence of paintings of the Limburg painter and stained-glass artist Charles Eyck, which apparently some time to guest on Curacao. A pity that the 47 clocks counting Memorial carillon with the names of the princesses Irene, Margriet and Marijke Beatrix, silent in the museum hang and outdoor use. This one had a different place in Willemstad can think of, where the carillon again in operation would be told. A missed opportunity as far as I'm concerned. Under modern art in the basement. In an annex, you will find a cockpit drawn up by "The Snip" with its documentation. Sad to see is the fact that the museum is located in a colonial building so many overdue maintenance. Personally, I liked the museum very disappointing and definitely not recommended. It is small and limited with what you would expect of a museum. We recommend the Savonet museum at the entrance of the Christoffel park on the west side of the island.

    Very interesting, but the heat & humidity might make it an 'interesting' stop if you have kids with you!? 😉 Still, not that many places in the world to take pics with real canons from the Pirates of the Caribbean era. I like the small tactical canons between the main building & airplane exhibit. 👍

    Interesting. Has the heaviest instrument on the island. 4000 pounds.

    The oldest art museum on the island, with both older classical works as art shows of contemporary art

    A good book store but a little expensive
