Welcome to the CuraƧao Maritime Museum


The Curaçao Maritime Museum takes its visitors on a discovery tour of more then 500 years maritime history of Curaçao. The story-line is illustrated through a permanent exhibition consisting of displays with authentic nautical charts, ship models and navigation equipment combined with audiovisual techniques...an attraction not to be missed.

As well as the exhibition, the museum also offers a number of interesting tours.

Besides a tour of the museum, a demonstration of the mini refinery, which is set up in a separate exhibition hall of the museum, can also be attended. In addition, a tour through the harbour can be made.

All tours are led by a guide. Guided tours take place every Wednesday  and Saturday afternoon. Read more...

Hydrographic charts


Hydrographic charts are maps designed as aids to navigation at sea.

The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office became part of the British Admiralty in 1795. Its first chart was published in 1800. Admiralty chart drawings were based on information provided by a surveying team; the original team and their ship is usually named below the title. The details of these surveys were drawn on copper plates and engraved as prints. Read more...

The Maritime Museum has original Hydrographic charts for sale. The print dates range from end '40s to the '80s. Various world-wide areas are available on either full-size maps or half-size maps for USD 50,-. For information drop us an email.
