We were on a cruise ship excursion that stopped at this outdoor-oriented museum. It is authentic and provides genuine insight into the lives of slaves on Curacao years ago. The guides are indeed wonderful, as someone else earlier noted. Recommend a stop here.

We visited this museum on a Princess shore excursion. The guide was very good and informative. We learned a lot about catus and use of natural products. We also learned about the life of the liberated slaves.

The guide was new and was very open and friendly. She taught me a few things about cacti, kitchen utensils, history. Then we talked about her lineage which was interesting!!!

Our group was about 40 people so we were split into two groups, each with a guide. This small living history museum is laid well. We learned about the daily life of the freed slaves. Even children would enjoy this open air museum.

Great museum and slave village. We got lots of information about the slave’s on the plantation. The ladies do an excellent job explaining about the life of the slaves - what they eat, dress, and how they build their houses. Awesome visit!
