Mangazina de Rei

As you begin to drive from Rincon back to Kralendijk, there is a large white building on a rise on the left side of the road. It is the Mangazina de Rei, the second oldest stone building on Bonaire.

Originally used to store crops, it has been beautifully restored, and serves as the centerpiece of a sprawling outdoor museum. The Mangazina de Rei foundation recently celebrated its 10th anniversary with an open house at the museum.

The hummingbird picture I recently posted was from this open house. Here is a look inside the main building and an outside as well. I hope to post pictures of some of the other exhibits soon.
