Create an itinerary including Maritime Museum Curacao
More than 500 years of maritime history is yours to experience at Maritime Museum Curacao, a nautical gem on the west coast of the island. The museum takes you on an oceanic journey, charting the history of Curacoa. From its position at the center of international trade routes in the Atlantic Ocean, its involvement in the slave and smuggling trade, to the history of the island's harbours, a series of informative displays and artefacts help tell the island's story. Don't miss the fully working miniature oil refinery, a separate exhibit that traces back the history of the island's oil industry from 1918. Harbor tours can be included in with a museum visit, and the museum shop specialises in maritime books. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Willemstad trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This museum is rich in history. There are 3 levels (spiral stairs and wheelchair accessible) The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. If you are into ships or history this is a must see.

  • Pretty small museum as these things go, but well worth a visit. Mention that you're from a cruise ship and you might actually get a discount. We did.
  • Amazing little museum that'll keep you busy for an hour or two with the history of Curaçao's maritime and naval history.
