Curaçao has existed for centuries upon centuries with some species unique to the island and some that have been introduced to it over time. This combination of fates has ushered along some compelling genetic mutations. Nestled in the heart of the Christoffel Park nature reserve, the Savonet Museum is a haven for science junkies who want to see Darwin’s theory in action. Through artifacts and photographs, the museum establishes the island’s unique history dating back to the arrival of the Arowak Indians 4000 years ago. It is a vivid demonstration of the interdependence between humans and nature, of history both cultural and natural.
