Great Photo-Ops!

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?

It wasn't open during our visit and from teh locals we heard that this was a problem lately. With the other sistes relating to the shipping trade's history in the areait would have been nice to see inside it.

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 restoration of the exterior as you stroll by.

It is a nice place to see, but it is viewed only from the outside it is not open to the public. I believe it is still being used as a public building.

This is next to the fort and the park, so you can't really miss it. Some interesting plaques and it's a pretty building.
