The building is much larger than it appears from the outside. It isn't expensive to visit and worth a look. There are plenty of rooms to view on different levels. There is no furniture but there are portraits etc. on the walls in some rooms....More

We came for about 30 minutes to this well preserved mansion in the heart of La Olivia. A small entrance fee of 3 EUR only for adults applied. The mansion has a lot of rooms - all off them without interior and some of them...More

Nice to visit a former colonial home with the history of this period included. The security guard was perhaps a bit too much, being present in full attire including a battong

This is a really well thought-out museum with different rooms giving different insights into life for the past rulers of the island. It really gives a feel of what life was like in the 19th century. The building is attractive in its own right, although...More
