The Curacao Museum is fittingly located in a colonial-style building in Western Otrobanda. Inside, visitors will find exhibits that touch on the geological history of the island, pre-Colombian artifacts, details about the time after the abolition of slavery, antiques, paintings, and a display of the traditional plantation kitchen. Two of the prized pieces of the museums collection is the carillon with 47 bells, and the cockpit of the first KLM plane to cross the Atlantic Ocean. This is a great place to learn about life on Curacao through the ages.

The museum dispenses to patrons an unequaled view about how Curaçao's locals regard the topic. Taking the lead among the varied presentations at Curacao Museum, guests will likely note a grouping of permanent exhibits. These are this site's continual expositions.
