Steam For Oil
The oil industry made a huge impact on the Curaçao community at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1918 the oil refinery started its production, refining Venezuelan oil from the Lake of Maracaibo. It brought welfare for the local people and was the incense for further development of the harbor activities in the Schottegat.
The Curaçao Maritime Museum has a separate exhibition about the oil industry on the island. A full working miniature of the refinery (7x3 m - 21' x9') makes this exhibition not just educational, but moreover exiting!
