Visit a museum on Curacao
The rich history and culture of Curacao is exhibited in various museums. In many cases the museum is an old building with a significant history, such as the Octagon. The famous Venezuelan freedom fighter Simón Bolívar stayed here for a few months to prepare for the final battle against the Spanish colonial rule in South America. Nowadays the Octagon is a small museum with a very visible and almost tangible history.
The most famous museum on Curacao might be the Seaquarium, where enthusiasts of the sea and its magnificent creatures go to be amazed. The oldest museum on the island is the Curacao Museum. All kinds of objects from the 18th to the 21st century are preserved and exhibited here. The Curacao Museum is much like a time capsule; there is art, traditional Curacao furniture and the cockpit of the first KLM plane that flew from The Netherlands to Curacao.
