TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Step back in time and discover what live in the San Nicolas community looked like in yesteryears.

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

The new Community Museum will be housed in the Nicolaas Store, a recently restored monument in the heart of downtown San Nicolas. Just this restored two-level beauty is worth a visit by itself, with original flooring and wooden doors. A terrance on the second floor provides 360 views over the city.

The museum's current location just across the San Nicolas bus terminal will become the national collection and remain primarily an object based exhibition. This exhibition will be 'mined' by ten artists in order to create ten installation housed at the new location, that will draw our attention to specific authentic aspects of the San Nicolas Community.
