Step back in time and discover what life in the San Nicolas community looked like in years gone by.

The new San Nicolas Community Museum is the latest addition to the museums in Aruba, opening in the second half of 2017. This museum is an invitation to explore deeper layers of Aruban culture.

The new Community Museum is located in the heart of San Nicolas town centre. This restored beauty is worth a visit in itself, with original flooring and wooden doors. A terrace on the second floor provides 360 degree views of the town.

The museum's location just opposite the San Nicolas bus terminal is the national collection and will remain primarily an object-based exhibition. This exhibition was be 'mined' by ten artists in order to create ten installations housed at the new location, which draws our attention to specific authentic aspects of the San Nicolas Community.
