Fort Zoutman & King Willem III Tower Historical Museum
Behind the government complex off L. G. Smith Blvd.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Visited here 5 August 2013 while in downtown Oranjestad. It’s easy to get to and across the street from the water front/marina area. It is the oldest remains of Dutch settlement and was built in 1797. It was nice to stop down to see some history and artifacts. If you are a history buff then you will like it. If not a history buff a quick 10 to 15 minutes will be good for you. It is probably nice to be down here when they have events down here.

Tuesday evenings the Aruban people put on a wonderful festival (dancing and music) for the visitors on the island. It is so much fun. We would always eat there with their homemade goodies whenever we visited. This festival is where I ALWAYS purchase my presents to bring home. The Arubans hand make them. One stop shoping for me!

This was interesting, but could be improved on. They have a lot of information, but it doesn't
follow a given time line. The exhibits jump from one era to another and back again. It would
be nice if everything flowed on a timeline. None the less, it was worth the $5.00 pp admission.

This was a nice historical site in Aruba but sorry we didn't get a chance to come downtown on Tuesday evening to see the carnival that goes along with it's history.
