Colonial relics, maps and Antillean art come together at the Kura Hulanda Museum, with the focus on the museum’s world-class collection of African artifacts. This well-regarded anthropological museum focuses on the cultures that have contributed to Curacao’s make-up over the centuries, including African slaves, West African empires and Pre-Columbian traders.
Guided and audio-guided tours are available, and a self-guided map helps you navigate your way around the exhibits. The museum shop has a good collection of maps, postcards, CDs and African art for sale.
The Kura Hulanda Museum is set on the site of a former slave yard and merchant’s home.
The museum overlooks St. Anna Bay in the center of Willemstad’s historic colonial quarter, Otrabanda.
