Reviewed 27 January 2013

During our two years in Aruba, we had the opportunity to visit ourselves, and then with family and friends. On Tuesday nights during tourist season they do the Bon Bini (hello in Papiamento) Festival with local performers. This is nice, but did tend to go on a bit. The small museum is nice and has some great artifacts to help you understand Aruba's past. Enjoy!

An interesting historical site - well worth taking the time to see in order to better appreciate the heritage of Aruba. Occasionally some special events are done here and they are worthwhile seeing as well.

Nice historical site in Aruba. The views of the ocean are terrific too.

It only takes a few minutes to see. Plan to spend 15 or 20 minutes.
