Savonet Museum

This Museum is a unique concept located at the heart of the Christoffelpark, the largest nature reserve on the island. Established in the former plantation house, called "landhuis", of the Savonet Plantation. It gives visitors a peek into the lives of the former inhabitants of the area, full of inside information and views. From the first Arowak Indians who came to the island almost 4000 years ago up to modern times. Modern audio-visual concepts, historical artefacts, faces of descendents of the former slaves, photography, completely restored antiques and much more give the museum the tools to tell a diverse story of interdependence between humans and nature, cultural history and natural history.

Kas di Pal i Maishi

Visit this small restored cottage in rural western part of Curaçao to get an impression of how the majority of the island’s population lived from 1850 till the 1950th. The cottage itself is of the end of the 19th century.

The exposition is called: Daily life around a cunucu house. Another name for this kind of cottage is Kas di pali maishi or Kas di yerba. Some characteristic aspects of these kinds of houses are the typical thatched roof of corn stalk with adobe/manure walls; walls are sloping and the cactus fence. The exposition also shows the daily tasks people did around the house and in the immediate surroundings. In the museum emphasis is put on the intangable heritage of the African Curacao people. Some very important aspects within this tradition are the strong relationship with nature, and the tradition of the multiple uses of different artifacts and objects of nature and the re-use and the recycle of artifacts.

Museum Kas di Pali Maishi is an interactive, open air museum. The visitor can experience some of the daily chores like moving the cactus with the wooden tool called chi ku cha; walking with the water bucket on your head. Inside the museum typical household articles from the past are exposed. The museum organizes also different workshops, including workshop on the aloe vera, on storytelling and also a culinary workshop. You will learn to bake your own traditional bread. The museum also offers walking tours in the nature of Ascencion.
