  • Great museum! One of the best African history museums around the world. A must see in Curacao. So many things to see in doors and out doors. 
  • Visited with my sister for my dissertation and was pleasantly surprised with how lovely, clean, and informative the museum was! Think it was $8 for entrance as a student but only $10 for an adult, so ...  more »

  • We didn't stay here, but thoroughly enjoyed walking around the grounds. They did a fantastic job creating the hotel from what it was.
  • 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 nop...it 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.
