Sidetrips: Museum of Slavery

museum-kura-hulanda.jpgMuseum Kura Hulanda is a world-class anthropological museum that focuses on the cultures of Curacao. Endeavoring to exorcise the ghosts of the painful history of the African slave trade, the educational exhibits chronicle West African cultures, and the enslavement, transportation and sale of native Africans to Curacao merchants. The powerful display of chains which held Africans captive, which you can actually touch, and a wooden replica of a slaving ship's hold gives you a sense of the inhumane treatment of other human beings. The Hotel Kura Hulanda, in which the museum is housed, is located on the site of the former slave trade market. Opening Hours: Daily from 10:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. Adult admission $9 USD
