The museum is small but it is worth the visit and will give you some insight on life on Aruba for over 100 years ago.
The museum is bigger than first thought. Really nice exhibition of how life has been and what they have done for a living. We were here in september, not crowded at all.
Fort Zoutman & King Willem III Tower Historical Museum Behind the government complex off L. G. Smith Blvd. Oranjestad, Aruba Visited here 5 August 2013 while in downtown Oranjestad.

Tuesday evenings the Aruban people put on a wonderful festival (dancing and music) for the visitors on the island. It is so much fun.

This was interesting, but could be improved on. They have a lot of information, but it doesn't follow a given time line. The exhibits jump from one era to another and back again. It would be nice if everything flowed on a timeline. None the less, it was worth the $5.00 pp admission.

The small museum is nice and has some great artifacts to help... More
An interesting historical site - well worth taking the time to see in order to better appreciate the heritage of Aruba. Occasionally some special events are done here and they are worthwhile seeing as well.
