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 discarded materials, recycled in 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 your reservation is in order to get acquainted with this cultural aspect of the island, that you will not find anywhere else. We take on 4 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 artist, originally from Companashi. His story telling and vast collection of artifacts, musical instruments, plants and art brings Aruban history and culture to life in a way that is completely separate from tourism.

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