  • Interesting synagogue and (very small) museum, but grossly overpriced at $10 per person. The much larger Kura Hulanda Museum and Curacao Maritime Museum are the same price.  more »
  • Wonderful staff and well kept museum. Much to see and ponder. TV video gave insight into a community that did much to shape the island that we see today. Artefacts impressive.  more »
