  • Do stop by. Beautiful building. Touch of class. You'll find it flooded with tourist whenever there new cruise ship arrives. Check out the traffic police officers in their well polished white outfits. 
  • Fun to walk during a guided walk in Nassau. The built stands out by its color. Fine for a beautiful picture.

  • Beautiful colonial building and setting right in the middle of Nassau. Love the pastel Caribbean colors of the buildings! 
  • Nice place to visit to get some history in the Bahamas. Reasonably well kept and tidy.
  • Nice visit. We visited with a school class. It was a good experience.
  • Generally very well kept, however a lot of the plants on the land look sickly or dying. Parts of the property likely haven't been used in decades. Events there are always with finger foods, some music, and of course mingling of the crowd
  • Good
  • Nice historical place to visit in The Bahamas
