The Curacao Museum is the first museum of the island. For quite a long time, it was also the only one. The colonial museum building is furnished with traditional mahogany furniture from the 19th century. Wandering around here is an experience by itself – history is tangible. The Curacao Museum focuses on Western influences within the Curacao culture, for example in the field of art. There are many paintings by international and local artists to be viewed. Even ancient utensils of the old Indians are exhibited. The Curacao Museum is one of the best preserved time capsules of the island.
