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.

The National Park Service has done a nice job of maintaining this building and the grounds. Take an hour and enjoy some island history

The Old Danish Customs House is in the middle of the National Park Historic District on St. Croix. Nearby are an old church, the Scale House, slave auction block and a fort. It gives a pleasant view of Christiansted harbor. There are picnic tables in the area and benches. You can buy food at a nearby grocery store or restaurant... More

Would have rated higher but the building is closed to the public, all you can do is walk around it. Having said that is part of larger complex that you can your.

There are a number of attractions in the historic area that are worth a visit and can all be done on the same day. This is one of them.
