Trip Advisor Traveler Rating

Have a unique and local experience at our Etnia Nativa Art Gallery & Museum and visit us for a daily one hour tour.

At Etnia Nativa you can admire art produced from objets trouvées transformed into beautiful art pieces and inspired by Aruba's millenarian cultures.

All information presented during our 'by-appointment-only' tours are given by a local expert and artist-scientist. So make sure to make a reservation to get acquainted with this cultural aspect of the island that you will not find anywhere else. We accept groups of four persons maximum per tour.

This beautiful museum and gallery in Westpunt is the home of the curator, Anthony Croes, a native Aruban. Anthony is an archaeologist and talented artist and is originally from Companashi. His storytelling and vast collection of artefacts, musical instruments, plants and art brings Aruban history and culture to life in a way that is completely unrelated to tourism.

We receive guests only by appointment, so please make reservations in advance.
