This is a basic text-based 16 characters by 2 lines LCD with white character on blue backlight. It utilizes the extremely common HD44780 parallel interface chipset.

Arduino IDE already has the LiquidCrystal library built-in. The examples given are using 6 digital pins only to control the LCD. Arduino official website also provides a very good tutorial to help you get started. You can connect this 16x2 LCD to an Arduino Uno as shown below.
