Curaçao, an island in the Caribbean, is and will always be connected to the sea. Its strategic location and natural deep water harbor made it a major seafaring and commercial center from very early in its history. A rich history that continues to influence the daily lives of its community. The Curaçao Maritime Museum established itself with the goal to bring this unique maritime past to life.

The Curaçao Maritime Museum takes its visitors on a discovery tour of more than 500 years maritime history of Curaçao. The story-line is illustrated through a permanent exhibition consisting of displays with authentic nautical charts, ship models and navigation equipment combined with audiovisual attraction not to be missed.

Besides the exhibition, the museum also offers a number of interesting tours.
