I was in St. John on a cruise and walked up the road to visit this house. $5 admittance fee. Guide (Ron?) was excellent and provided a lot of information. Worth a visit. Andrew

a wonderful place to visit! beautiful furniture that has been made many years ago by very gifted craftsman! and it shows a period in history of how people lived.
We (5 adults)visited recently and were taken round by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We were able to take photos and videofilm. Our guide gave a vivid insight into life in that era. Thoroughly recommended and not expensive or crowded.
