July 1 is Keti Koti, the day of the 'broken chains'. We commemorate and celebrate the abolition of slavery in Suriname and the Antilles. An important day for the Maritime Museum.

That's why we invite you to a delicious (free) heri heri meal on our Open Square.
Eating together, remembering together, celebrating together.

Heri heri is a one-pot dish of cassava, sweet potato, green and yellow bananas, fried salty fish (cod) and an egg. Today heri is heri a dish that culturally connects people to their ancestors and thus to history. Note: while stocks last.

On the same day, the museum also opens Decoding the Atlantic, an art installation by Sites of Memory and artists Raul Ballay and Jarrett Erasmus, focusing on the history of slavery and maritime codes.
