Only saw the building form the outside. Would be great to see inside. From the outside it looks well cared for and well worth seeing.

This stately building is well maintained, painted and attractive in a contemporary way; this is a juxtaposition to the other colonial buildings in the city which are beautiful, but very scruffy.

Nice to see historical/colonial building. Next to the onafhankelijkheidsplein. Unfortunately there are no tours inside.
