Peek into the former homes of some the finest families of Aruba, the Americas, and Europe at this free antique collection/museum that's just as eclectic as the building it's housed in. Red copper towers made from 17th-century building supplies spiral their way up, with a collection of beauties beneath their surfaces. There are 23 showrooms in this Rococo building on the outskirts of Oranjestad, with a myriad of handmade items like carved furniture, statues, paintings, jewelry, porcelain, and Persian rugs. If you're searching for the perfect present or souvenir to bring back home, you can even buy something. And if you haven't had enough antiquing at this point, don't worry. Travelers can join the Arubans on the first Sunday of the month for an island-style flea market just outside the Rococo Plaza here.
