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...

Solo Exhibition Michelle Angella Meijs


Michelle Angella Meijs is a Jamaican born, living in Curaçao since 1990.

Being a self-taught visual artist, she experimented with a variety of media, techniques and surfaces, from pencil portraits on paper, to digital drawings of surrealism art, to acrylics on boards. Her style and technique are still evolving.

She now creates paintings in acrylics, both oceanscapes & marine life, as well as fluid abstracts. These are painted on special surfaces like clay boards and gesso boards.

Michelle’s oceanscape paintings are inspired by her love of the ocean’s movement and waves. The blended shades of blue & green colors of the sea, are rendered in vibrant acrylic colors.

Her abstracts are influenced by the organic structure of rocks, corals & plants found in nature, and by the movement and flow of water. The shapes, textures, swirls, and splashes of colours, are all the things that come together to make up these non-objective abstract pieces.

Michelle is proud to have her first solo exhibition at the Maritime Museum Curaçao, opening on Sunday, November 23, which showcases a variety of her creations related to the ocean & nature.
