“A very nice museum.”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The museum had quite a few interesting things about Curaçao and it's marine history. Texts are in both Dutch and English. We spend about 1,5 hour in the museum and had a good time as it was nice to read and see everything. There was also information about the museum itself as it is in an historic building.

“Maritime History galore”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

A small museum packed with historical artifacts, displays, information and model ships. An indepth look at the maritime history of the area including current Dutch Navy exercises and deployments. Well worth the 6.50 USD admission charge. I highly recommend it if you are in Willemstaad.

“Very nice and easy to find”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

Small but nice museum on the harbor. Nice displays, easy to follow with a good history of the island. Definitely worth an hour if you like sea history and want to know more about Curacao.

“Attractive, informative, nice staff - do the boat tour!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Attractive, informative, nice staff - do the boat tour! Gift shop prices were reasonable and they had some different stuff. There's a restaurant but we didn't try it.

“Ship people loved it”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Beef Guy loved it, had to read every plaque. I'm kinda lukewarm on boat stuff. But the maps were cool. Worth an hour visit.
