Don't miss this beautiful historical museum building. Part of the fort complex. Beautiful grounds. Great area to sit and enjoy the culture and weather.

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.

This customs house is situated in a park setting, after visiting this site you can relax under the cabana and enjoy the breeze.

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.

This building is on the same grounds as Ft Christiansvaern so it's worth looking at the building if you're there already, but as others have mentioned there's no access to inside so it's really just a cool building to look at.

Great area to visit... don't think the Customs House is open daily; but the area is a historic site all in itself; the architecture is appealing to the eye (well for me)... walk around and see similar buildings; Fort Christian is near by!

This is a must. We walked away from here after going through this really heavy weight as to what countries have always done to civilizations. This is really the building of the Americas in a whole new perspective.
