Terramar Museum Bonaire

The Caribbean Islands are some of the most highly regarded travel destinations in the world. Most tourists however don’t have any historical knowledge of the Carribean intoxicating mix of cultural confrontations, that left and still leave their traces. With thousands of visitors pulling in on daily basis Terramar offers a platform to tell this story. Understanding this history can provide visitors with a richer and more satisfying view on this beautiful part of the world.

The overall idea of the Terramar Museum is to tell the stories behind historical objects by staging encounters with local habitants of the Caribbean in different historical times. Amerindian talk about their first encounters with a European colonialists, a slave talks about the harsh life on the plantations. Through a combination of historical artefacts, fascinating stories and interactive experiences, history comes to life at Terramar Museum.
