Since 1993, Seven Arches has been the home of Barbara Demaras and Philibert Fluck who have opened the historic building to the public for tours. This spot offers visitors a great opportunity to view a home set up to reflect life on the island of Charlotte Amalie in the past.

What to Expect

Restored to resemble the home as it was set up by the original owners, guests who tour Seven Arches will be transported back in time to the mid-19th century.

The "welcoming arms" staircase greets guests as they enter the grounds of Seven Arches and invites them into the building which features antiques from the 19th century and a collection of mahogany furniture. In the courtyard, visitors are surrounded by flowers and hummingbird as they take in the view of the Charlotte Amalie harbour.

Staying Close

Downtown Charlotte Amalie is a good option for those wishing to visit Seven Arches Museum, because visitors to this area of the Virgin Islands will have the benefit of easy access to this museum throughout their trip. Even though the region isn't packed wall-to-wall with tourists, you'll still find a reasonably varied selection of lodgings to choose from.
