Known by all as Akarenga (red bricks), this magnificent neo-baroque building was constructed of bricks in 1888 and is surrounded by lovely lawns and gardens. There are various historical exhibits and art on show. While Akarenga closes at 6pm, the gardens are open until 9pm and are a popular place for a stroll.
