A nice old building architecturally, worth seeing if you visit Christiansted; we visited the town by public bus when our cruise ship was in Frederiksted.

This is very popular with photographers due to the beautiful classic Dutch Caribbean architecture. The building itself was closed, bit it was still a site to behold. Part of the area with the Fort and the Steeple Church

We were unable to enter the building but we loved the views from the steps. We took a ton of pictures and just enjoyed the lovely architecture.

It looks interesting from the outside but we went over three times and it was never open. It intertwines with the fort and scale house so it would be nice if there was some history outside more available or times it was open.

The view from the battlements overlooking the harbor is worth the few bucks admission. It's a National Park! Who knew?

This building is a part of the Christiansted Historical Site area. Not available to go in, but it along with the other buildings (you can go in the fort) is interesting history. Glad it is being saved.

This building is down the street from the Fort and the exterior is nicely restored. I have never seen the inside and don't believe it is open to the public. Generally the gates are locked as well, so all you can do is admire the...More
