Museum Kura Hulanda

Klipstraat Otrobanda Willemstad

See directions

Museum Kura Hulanda is located in a 19th-century merchant's house right at the city-center harbor of Willemstad, where Dutch entrepreneurs once traded and transshipped enslaved Africans along with other 'commercial goods'. It documents the brutal history of slavery in the New World, including the slave trade, slave culture and abolition. To call this a ‘Slavery Museum’, as many guidebooks do, is to only scratch the surface.

Make sure you take your time to see the whole complex and be prepared to be shocked if not depressed by some of the exhibits.
