Curaçao owes its existence to the sea. Its strategic location and natural harbor made it a major seafaring and commercial center from early in its history. The museums interior harmoniously embraces the age-old maritime history and modern design in a historic 17th century building spectacularly restored to its former glory. The museum is located in a mansion built in 1729 on the Waaigat inlet just above the floating market. Exhibits include antique miniatures, 17th century ship models and maps, some even dating back to 1500.
