    in November of 1955, Mario Odor, the nation's famous coin collector, was digging in his garden on his 36th birthday, when he discovered two old coins; one a 1790 penny and the other a 1788 half penny, called tradesmen copper Irish tokens. To Mario, it would be a sign that he was in the right profession and that collecting coins for posterity would become his duty; so he began teaching his family members the traditions of coin collecting. Now, his widow, son, daughter and granddaughters are following in his legacy at the fabulous Numismatic Museum in Oranjestad, Aruba, where you might meet one of them as they guide you through the marvelous collections. The museum would be started in 1975 to preserve his collections, and one of the best exhibits includes "Collection Timeline" that showcases the coins that had been circulated during the history of the island, since it had been the location of traders, merchants, colonists and pirates that traveled the Caribbean Sea looking for opportunities to plunder. Mario would continue his collecting for more than sixty years of his life. Today, his son, Ruben Odor and granddaughter, Desiree Croes, who are both numismatists would raise his collections to a loftier level and open the island's first numismatics museum. It is also the first museum of its kind in the island and still houses the fabulous collection of Mario Odor.

    Archaeological Museum of ArubaArchaeological Museum Oranjestad, Aruba
    the oldest relics of the island's cultural heritage is preserved in the archaeological museum of Aruba, with a permanent collection that provides visitors with a taste of the history and pre-history of the nation. There are numerous stone tools, ornaments, ceramic relics and shells showcased for the visitors that come here to learn more about the island's history and culture, since the island had humans coming here as long as 4500 years ago. Sero Muskita and Arikok have been the locations where many stone tools have been discovered, with the people that came here 2500 years ago left, after coming here from the mainland in their makeshift canoes. These sea wanderers would never stay in one place too long, but would travel from island to island, looking for various foods and places to stay during the summer storms and usually would travel in groups of 10 to 15. They would hunt smaller animals, pickup shellfish and fish, as well as picking any fruits that they enjoyed, and the period that these hardy wanderers lived in would later be called the pre-ceramic period from 2500 BC to 1000 AD. These pre-ceramic people would bury their dead in family groups underneath huge pieces of limestone, and one such group would be uncovered at a cave in Canashito, and another excavated at Malmok.
