Close to the fort. Well maintained yellow building. The grounds are all well kept up. Nice shaded areas close by to sit down and cool down under the hot sun

I've climbed these steps so many times as a young child, teenager and now as an adult. Wish the building could speak and tell me all the history. Makes me proud to be born and raised on this beautiful island. Please, visit.

Close to the fort, it is nice to catch the customs house on your way out. Similar feel to the fort, it creates a nice campus like feel. There are wonderful big trees nearby to get some shade!

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?
