    How to get there
    Getting to Terramar Museum is easy. We are located at the Terramar shopping mall in the center of Kralendijk, at a stone’s throw from the cruise docks. The museum can be accessed from the Kaya J.N.E. Craane (the boulevard) and the Kaya Isla Riba. There is ample parking space just south around Wilhelmina square and the Pasanggrahan.



    Facilities
    Terramar Museum is located in the Terramar shopping mall where you will find a multitude of shops. At the museum entrance and at Bonaire Affair next door you can browse our gift shop. We sell a selection of books relating to Caribbean and Bonairean history and archaeology, replica artifacts, merchandise, and beautiful prints of Bonairean monuments. Whatever it is you’re looking for, in our shop you will find the perfect souvenir for yourself or gifts for friends and family. All sales will be used to further the mission of the museum and continue its activities.

    Toilets are located on the premises. A key can be obtained at the front desk (only for museum guests).

    The museum offers free WiFi to its visitors.

    Coffee Company and Luciano’s, on the corner of the Terramar complex, is the perfect place to enjoy excellent coffee and ice cream. The creperie next to the museum sells delicious crepes which you can enjoy on the museum square

    Guided tours
    While many people choose to explore the museum on their own, a tour with one of our guides will bring history to life even more. In approximately one hour, one of our guides will lead you through the exhibitions and will provide you with in-depth information on the topics and artifacts on display. All our guides are highly knowledgeable about the history and archaeology of Bonaire and surrounding islands, and it is their passion to share this knowledge with you. A guided tour makes a perfect family outing and is a great way to enjoy the museum with a group of friends. Make sure you get the most out of your museum experience and book a guided tour with us.
