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...

New in the Maritime Museum

In October, the maritime museum opened a new exhibition called "Defence in the Caribbean". The Governor of Curaçao and the Governor of St. Maarten were the first to see this new exhibition. This interactive and contemporary exhibition displays and explains the duties of the Dutch Defense in the Caribbean. You also get an insight into the people and the equipment that perform these tasks.

Curious? Visit the top floor of the Maritime Museum Curaçao.
