National Archaeological Museum of Aruba
Housed in a former home, this interactive museum is chock-a-block with ancient artifacts. The sprawling mansion encompasses more than 10,000 pieces culled from over three distinct periods of indigenous history—Pre-Ceramic (2500 B.C.E. to 1000 C.E.), Ceramic (900 to 1515) and History Cultural (1515 to 1880). Visitors can view tools made of shell and stone, decorative items and food vessels, along with items from Aruba’s gold rush. Of particular note is a limestone family burial cave, which dating back 4,000 years makes it one artifacts in the museum The building itself with its Dutch Colonial architectural details is an interesting site. The museum is closed on Mondays.
