Kurá Hulanda Museum
The Caribbean's most comprehensive museum dedicated to the slave trade and the Middle Passage, Kurá Hulanda (meaning "Dutch courtyard" in Papiamento) is also the region's largest anthropological collection on Africa. Founded by Dutch philanthropist Jacob Gelt Dekker, the museum opened in 1999 and is located on a former slave yard and merchant’s home. The hair-raising Middle Passage section begins outdoors with the replica of slave pillars for public flogging, and continues indoors to showcase Curaçao’s role as the epicenter of the slave trade, along with the tools used to trap, brand, and punish. For an additional $3, master storyteller Yflen Florentina takes you through the museum while sharing gripping tales from Curaçao's darkest historical period.
