Examine the anthropological exhibitions at the important Kura Hulanda Museum, which focuses on the origins of man, the African slave trade, and West African empires, among other subjects.

You’ll have the chance to inspect letters, drawings, and other artifacts from the era, giving you a direct perspective on a bygone era.

  • I'm staying here at the hotel. The rooms are large. Beautiful. Nice fan, right in the middle of a seriously scenic section. Highly recommended. 
  • At 3 p.m. on arrival were told they would close at 4:30. But there was no guide more. Mellissa was on the phone and found this much more important. She was very impatient at the tapping her nails. We felt as if we were not welcome. I think that at this time you should receive your guest warmly. This was a very bad experience and will advise no one here to go along.

  • The museum was incredible and disturbing. Something I think everyone should see and learn more about our nasty past with the slave trade. I was surprised at the amount of artifacts and information they had there and really well setup to take you through the various periods of time.
  • Breakfast...nop...dinner took them 2 hours to deliver a clubsandwich and on top of that their was a cockroach eating my leftovers in the morning, and all this for 250 a night..??? No thank you
  • Great and honest representation of history.
  • Very much worth the price of admission. A jumble of a collection of Africana, with a strong collection of art and material about the slave trade.
  • Quaint and historic place to stay if you visit Willemstad.
