You’ll be amazed at what has been preserved in time in Oranjestad town centre in the historic Ecury family home, now a museum.

The renovated historic Ecury complex in central Oranjestad has been transformed from a family home to a modern museum that preserves Aruba’s Amerindian cultural heritage.

The oldest part is a cunucu house built in 1870 by the grandparents of Boy Ecury, a young Aruban hero of World War II who lived in the house from 1922–1937. The newest section is a large mansion built in 1929, now housing a 21st century museum especially designed to preserve valuable artefacts.
