“Small Island; Small Government (?)”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We saw the government house as we were walking around Charlotte Amalie. It seemed to be in pretty good shape, was attractive. We did not get a chance to go inside, as it was on a Saturday. Took lots of pictures of the building; the fort; the canons, etc.

“Good stop on your travels.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Stopped by and was let in. Nice murals inside and was a good break from the hot air and walking around. I was able to see only the first floor where there are three murals depicting the transfer of the islands to the United States and two others. Plus some history of the governors and the state bird and flower. No tour was given since it was on the Thursday before Good Friday so, we only saw the first floor. Got a courtesy notepad with pen -nice touch. It was empty just for the one guy at the reception desk. I walked around inside the first floor area then took pictures on the steps and at the old Danish sentry post outside.
