We just walked by here when visiting from a cruise port. Interesting that government building in Nassau are pink. You can't go inside but it's nice to just take a picture!

Pink is the colour for Government buildings in the Bahamas. This is Government House, to be distinguished from Parliament Square which is more in the city of Nassau. We were passing by from the car park where we had left our hire car, and saw it through the gates. As you would expect, you can't get in - just stick... More

The exterior of Government House is beautiful in its pink-and-whiteness, and the canon at the closed gate that faces one of the main roads is interesting to see. On the second floor (a small elevator is made available upon request), there is a large auditorium with a stage, which accommodates a grand piano for the numerous concerts that are held... More

I recommend this place, a great view. I saw and heard a great military band. It is located in a very central place of Nassau.

Government House is a working government building. For the most part, you won't be let inside. I was fortunate that, when I mentioned I had worked at my state's capitol, the person by the door said I could walk inside, but only into the front hall. Inside I saw a tired looking hallway and one dingy office with a desk... More

Nothing really special about this place, just another piece of the government complex. The best part of this area is actually on the other side of this building.

The grounds were beautiful. A local police officer told us that we just missed the band that performs every 2 weeks for the changing of the guard. We did hear a band when we entered town. It is very clean and stately looking, great photos.

The Government House is a well maintained area of a number of government buildings all painted pink with white trim. There are displays talling the history of Bahamian Government outside. One of the most interesting features we found was a small hexagonal building on the back of the grounds that houses the Bahamian National Library. We were told that it... More
