Temporary Exhibitions

August 2016 – February 2017

‘Sailors of the past’ is the first temporary exhibition hosted by Terramar Museum. Fifteen historic photographs at the entrance of the museum will provide a glimpse into the fascinating maritime history of the ABC islands, from young Bonairean deckhands daringly diving from mast tops to burly dock workers moving heavy cargo at the Handelskade in Curacao and majestic three-masted clipper ships at anchor in Oranjestad, Aruba. The exhibition is made by the Bonaire Maritime Heritage Foundation, the organization responsible for the restoration of the Stormvogel, the last remaining sailing cargo ship from the region.
