What began as a Lutheran Church is now a museum called the Steeple Building detailing, among other important topics, the history of the slave trade on St. Croix.

Exhibits

Exhibits at the Steeple Building include ancient Indian artifacts, Victorian and Danish architecture, and a study of the plantation era with a great deal of emphasis on the slave industry.

Staying Close

Those wishing to visit Steeple Building may choose to book their trip in downtown Christiansted, as visitors to this part of the Virgin Islands will have the benefit of convenient access to the museum during their time there. There isn't much congestion in the area near the museum, perhaps because there aren't many lodging options nearby.
