Suriname Pavilion

Suriname Pavilion

THEME: Suriname is History

PAVILION: The Pavilion is built as a traditional Surinamese home and courtyard.

EXHIBIT: Visitors entering the house will see a video extolling the virtues of travel in Suriname. In the courtyard to the side of the house three totem poles, built by some of Suriname’s most respected folk artists, represent Suriname’s tribal past. On the far wall a photomural and artificial plants create the feel of a Surinamese rain forest. A small wooden footbridge allows visitors to cross over a small creek which flows in the rear of the Pavilion. In it a small traditional Surinamese skiff floats. A traditional tribal hut decorates the back wall, along with a golden statue of El Dorado, representing the Spanish influence in the region. A hammock and a photomural show the beauty of Surinamese beaches. 

CUISINE: A vendor will sell ice cream and cold beverages from a pushcart in the courtyard, as vendors do in Suriname.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.

Note: This Pavilion was located in the Caribbean Community Joint Pavilion
