This privately funded cultural museum has a vast quantity of African artifacts. Anthropology is the focus of this museum and the collections catalog the origins of man in great detail, with a lot of focus on the slave trade era.


This site displays for tourists a different view about how the people of Curaçao feel about the subject matter. Kura Hulanda Museum, as is the case with many other museums, hosts several permanent exhibitions, which contain the museum's most talked-about exhibits.

On the site of a former slave yard, even the grounds of the museum are buzzing with history. It is no small feat to tour Kura Hulanda Museum in its entirety because it spans 15 buildings and a sculpture garden.
