A Rich Heritage

The history of Aruba is a compelling and interesting one, stretching back well before the days of Dutch colonization in the 19th century. This museum preserves ancient artifacts and cultural vestiges of the Amerindian culture that date back more than 500 years.

The National Archaeological Museum Aruba was opened in 2009 and currently houses more than 10,000 artifacts that represent the pre-Ceramic, Ceramic, and Historic periods of island life. The museum staff also helps to discover, excavate, and preserve local historic sites along with educating the public about their findings.
