Aruba Model Train Museum

If you are planning a visit to San Nicolas or to Baby Beach, stop by the Aruba Model Train Museum. This little gem was opened on December 1, 2001 by the director and founder J. de Vries.

Fort Zoutman was built in 1798 by the Dutch Army, and is the oldest structure on the island of Aruba. The Willem III Tower was added to the west side of the fort in 1868. Both the fort and tower were restored and re-opened in 1983 as the Historical Museum of Aruba.

Founded in 1993, Fundacion Museo Arubano (FMA) is tasked with the preservation and promotion of Aruba’s natural and cultural heritage.
