Built in 1867 as a meeting place for the Danish Colonial Council, this gracious neoclassical white edifice houses the governor's office. You are welcome to stroll around the first floor, where you can view four small paintings by the native son and acclaimed Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro. Other works of art are on display. Tours of the lovely second-floor ballroom, with its Baccarat chandelier, mahogany railings and spectacular views of the city and harbor, require an advance appointment. There is no admission charge.
