The forced relocation of Africans from Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean by Europeans from the 17th to the 19th centuries, changed the face of the world forever. Museum Kura Hulanda is situated right at the city-center harbor of Willemstad, where Dutch entrepreneurs once traded and transshipped enslaved Africans along with other 'commercial goods'. This museum impressively exhibits the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade in its totality, from slave capture in Africa through the Middle Passage and the relocation in the New World.

The museum Kurà Hulanda demonstrates that the African and diverse cultural heritage has influenced Curaçaoan and Caribbean societies until today.

Opening hours: Monday trough Sunday 10.00 am - 05.00 pm
