Overview

We are a one of a kind Native Aruban Art Gallery & Museum where all that we produce and exhibit proceeds from discarded materials, recycled in beautiful art pieces inspired on Aruba`s traditional Cultures. How to get involved: Did you know that every morning we promote very personal 1 hour tours here at our Art Galley and Museum. So Make sure your reservation and get acquainted with this cultural aspect of the island that you will not fined anywhere else. Appointment required: maximum 4 persons per tour with an entry fee per person. We also give specific adapted tour on request regarding the scientific and cultural essence of our native inspiration.
