Located in a former mansion, this interactive museum is full of ancient artifacts. Culled from three distinct periods of indigenous history, the collection includes more than 10,000 pieces from Pre-Ceramic (2500 B.C.E. to 1000 C.E.), Ceramic (900 to 1515), and History Cultural (1515 to 1880) times. Visitors will find shell and stone tools, decorative items, and food vessels, along with vestiges of Aruba’s gold rush. Of particular note is a limestone family burial cave, which, at 4,000 years old, is one of the more ancient pieces in the museum. With its Dutch Colonial architectural details, the building itself is also worth admiring. Note: the museum is closed on Mondays.
