Interesting if you are into architecture and the history of a place. I went to have a look on break from a seminar that we were doing in the Bahamas. I wish i had, had more time to have a good look about and really soak it up. Worth walking down Bay Street to see this.

There is nothing exciting about this place but take a look. We did not go in and I have no idea if you can. It's in town and takes all of 5 minutes to look at. I bascially just went to see to it to say I saw it. LOL.

There is a statue of Christopher Columbus out front of the building paying tribute to him... More

Do stop by. Beautiful building. Touch of class. You'll find it flooded with tourist whenever there new cruise ship arrives. Check out the traffic police officers in their well polished white outfits.

Beautiful colonial building and setting right in the middle of Nassau. Love the pastel Caribbean colors of the buildings!
