The Mongui Maduro Museum and its library, was founded in 1974.

A foundation, in memory of Salomon (Mongui) Abraham Levy Maduro, and carrying his name, was established on March 5, 1974 by his widow Mrs. Rachel Louise (Lou) L. Maduro and their daughter Mrs. Ena Dankmeijer-Maduro.

The Foundation encompasses the plantation house -Rooi Catootje-, its antique furniture and its priceless library, containing a unique collection of Antilliana and Judaica.
It was Mr. Maduros desire to make his valuable collection available to the public.

Entering the Rooi Catootje plantation house is entering into a world where time has stood still; where one is overwhelmed by a sense of history.
The early 19th century plantation house Landhuis Rooi Catootje, one of Curacaos historical monuments, houses a museum which displays antique furniture as well as many historic and unique objects. Each room contains special, permanent exhibits of the memorabilia of the Mongui Maduro family.
