Terramar is a new museum and well worth an hour of your time. We enjoyed the Coral Restoration and Island History History exhibits. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit when you are in town.

Very interesting museum about the maritime history of Bonaire, the slave trade and coral regeneration. The history of Bonaire is on full display at this museum and does a deep dive on a couple of very interesting wrecks found in the waters of Bonaire.

My first time ever to Bonaire so I had to visit this museum it was a history lesson that I needed about this island and the others in the area. Very detailed about the timeline and progression of the growth and developement of the inhabitants.
