Delve into Island History at the Savonet Museum

Delve into Island History at the Savonet Museum

Once part of the Savonet Plantation, this museum gives you an overview of the island’s diverse history, dating back to the original inhabitants arriving nearly 4,000 years ago. If you enjoy learning about new cultures, you’ll like learning about local plantation life and traditions in Curaçao during the 19th and 20th centuries. One unique tradition among the Savonet slaves was the need to protect newborn babies from Edze, a vampire-like creatures that would hunt babies during their first 8 days of life.
