“Small but a good building to check out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Sort of a building on the fort tour. I didn't think of it as different than the fort myself. I was staying at King Christian so it seemed almost right on the property of the hotel.

“It is a scale.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

This is sort of like visiting the real Plymouth Rock. It really isn't much to see, but is interesting if you are walking by. It contributes to understanding the history of the island, but I don't think you will be impressed.

“A little bit of history in the harbor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The scale house in Christiansted is the place where all the goods coming onto the island were weighed for tax purposes. There are plaques explaining it, and a bit of surprise hisory of Alexander Hamilton!

“See it with the full tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This is part of what you can look at as part of overall tour if the area- not a sight to go to for just that.
