Savonet Museum is a unique concept in the heart of the Christoffel Park. The largest nature reserve on the island harbors the buildings of the former Savonet Plantation including the formal plantation house called “landhuis”.
The Museum was opened thanks to funds provided by the Dutch Government. The museum gives visitors inside information and a peak into the lives of the former inhabitants of the area, starting with the first Arawak Indians who came to the island almost 4000 years ago, and continues through to today.
Modern audio-visual concepts, historical artifacts, faces of descendants of the former slaves, photographs, completely restored antiques and much more will give the museum the tools to tell a diverse story of interdependence between humans and nature, cultural history and natural history.
