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

The renovated historic Ecury complex in downtown 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 artifacts.
