We made a quick stop at the botanical garden & were amazed by all the beauties the garden held. We did a quick walking tour through a fourth of the 16 acres of sugar plantation ruins & beautiful gardens. It's a photographers dream. Our kids really enjoyed it also and wanted to stay longer. Our 8 and 11 year old... More

We are used to the Arboretum in Dallas so this was not of that caliber but, it is St Croix. Lots of great old Danish ruins on the sight add to alot of natural island beauty. Flowers even in a drought were spectacular.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The gardens are stunning and we have some amazing pictures in the gardens. We loved the rainforest portion and learned about native plants and trees. We also learned some history about the plantation. Entrance fees were very reasonable and they have a wonderful gift shop. This is a must see in... More

Very hot, so go early in the day. The walking tour is easy to follow. Nice flowers and cool old ruins.

Maybe it was the time of year, but it was hot walking through this Botanical Garden. Beautiful tropical flowers and unusual trees...Some I've never seen before (i.e., Kapok, Turpentine Tree, Mahogany). This was a self tour, so there were only a few plaques describing the different buildings. This was a sugar planation at one time. The museum was closed, so... More

We really enjoyed walking the grounds. Entrance fee was like $8 and came with a great self-guided walking tour & map. Got to read about the indigenous people, Christopher Columbus' landing, and history of the sugar plantation. Beautiful flowers & plants, interesting ruins.

We really enjoyed this ruined old plantation from Danish/slavery/plantation times, and all the plants. Learned all sorts of interesting things, including that before the 1840's, there was a year round river through it canoe-able to the coast, but irrigation and deforestation changed the hydrology so much the year-round rivers all disappeared.

Another among the many of the "must see" on St. Croix! A tour through some of the St. Croix history and flora and fauna. Loved it!

My husband and I set out on the self-guided tour through the garden and sugar plantation ruins. The exhibits were well marked, but the trail wasn't always clear. Fortunately we were intercepted by Martin, an honors student hanging out at the gardens while his Mom worked nearby. What a nice, friendly guy!! He toured us expertly around each of the... More

This is a gem on St. Croix if you like history which we do. Built on the site of an old plantation village, it incorporates history and a botanical garden. An infusion of funding would make this even more interesting, but without it, it is still worth the trip. Local artists are featured in the museum store at very reasonable... More
