Gallery Alma Blou

Today Gallery Alma Blou in Landhuis Habaai is the oldest and largest gallery on Curaçao, featuring local and Caribbean art.

The mansion has an ideal layout: A large main gallery, the heart, is flanked by a front and a back gallery. The building is situated in a way that makes daylight filter through it beautifully, enhancing the artworks beauty. Collections of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry and dolls are exhibited in different spaces in such a way that their quality stands out even more.

Themes and materials vary widely, but all art has a Caribbean character and Curaçaoan flair. Artists are inspired by the colors, the architecture, the people, the underwater life, the wind, mythology, the sea or the landscape. In short by all Curaçao and the Caribbean with their diversity has to offer and triggers the artists imagination.

The Curaçao Museum / Museo di Korsou

The Curaçao Museum is housed in a former Military Hospital, built back in 1853, a colonial style building which conveys an air of authenticity at the very first glance. It opened as a Museum on March 7, 1948, displaying a permanent collection of Art works, Antique Furniture made by local craftsmen, glassware and textiles, dating from the 18th, 19th and 20th century. In 1954 it was the first Museum in South America and the Caribbean to exhibit 37 original artworks by Vincent van Gogh. To date it has a vast collection of paintings by Local, Dutch and International Artists and frequently organises Exhibitions with established Artists as wel as Emerging Artists.

Unique in the Caribbean region, is the Carillon, installed in 1951 named ‘The Four Royal Children’ named after the four daughters of the late Queen Juliana.

The Snip Gallery houses the cockpit of the "Snip", the first KLM plane to cross the Atlantic Ocean from Amsterdam to Curaçao in 1934.

It’s large shaded botanical garden with some rare old trees, includes among other things, sculptures of freedom fighters such as Luis Brion and Manuel Piar but also modern works of art by artists like Yubi Kirindongo, Hortence Brouwn and Philippe Zanolino. It lends itself perfectly for a stroll! The Curaçao Museum has much much more to offer but it’s too much to mention here. Pay us a visit and explore The Curaçao Museum for yourself.

Beeldentuin Blue Bay

Het initiatief om in 2017 een beeldenroute en wat later beeldentuin op te richten op Blue Bay Golf & Beach Resort is werkelijkheid geworden. Niet alleen wordt een unieke mogelijkheid geboden aan de bewoners, golfspelers en hotelgasten om kennis te nemen van het hoge niveau van de Curaçaose sculpturale kunst, maar ook geeft dit initiatief Curaçaose kunstenaars de mogelijkheid om letterlijk en figuurlijkaan de weg te timmeren. Ook bewoners van Curacao en met name schoolkinderen zullen met werk van ‘hun’ kunstenaars op een gemakkelijke manier in contact gaan komen.

De Curaçaose kunst heeft zich de afgelopen jaren zeer goed ontwikkeld. In buitenlandse musea, op biënnales en triënnales, grote ten- toonstellingen en manifestaties zijn onze kunstenaars veelvuldig met hun werk vertegenwoordigd (geweest).

Blue Bay biedt nu de ruimte om deze ontwikkelingen op het gebied van drie-dimensionale objecten concreet te bekijken en geeft daarmee bovendien het cultureel toerisme een extra impuls. De beeldenroute is eind december 2017 gerealiseerd. Op 2 mei is de beeldentuin, beginnend met 5 beelden op sokkels, geopend.

Opening hours

Monday - Sunday, 24 hours but best to visit with day light
