Among busy streets and crowded bazaars lies the Dutch Period Museum, a place that showcases the Dutch history of the island. The museum is old, and not very well maintained; the hallways are poorly lit, while the artifacts lay dusty. The staff is not well conversant in English, which makes it difficult to gain any additional information about the place. However, for those who have a genuine interest in learning about history, the Dutch museum should definitely be on their agenda. The museum is apt for a quick visit, since the bustling markets outside are more fun to walk through and shop.
