Cas Tan Tin’ ,a classic Cunucu house, built by Mario and Johanna Tromp, where they raised their nine children. Mario also tended to the cultivation of fruits and vegetables like okra, cucumbers, and pumpkins for their personal consumption.

The term “Cunucu houses” is derived from their prevalence in rural (‘Cunucu’) areas. These houses, such as the Tan Tin House, were constructed during the period following the ‘Torto Houses,’ which were made of clay and are also part of our rural heritage. Many of these homes were surrounded by expansive plots of land frequently used for farming.

In 2019, Monuments Fund Aruba acquired this property from one of Mario Tromp’s daughters.

It is currently Museum Cas Tan Tin operated by Mi Cutisa Foundation.
