A short, but comprehensive history of Nevis

While not large, the museum offers a lot of information on the history of Nevis. Would have spent more time if we were not on a 'schedule'.

The museum is next to the Alexander Hamilton House. The admission fee is for both places and was relatively inexpensive. The museum is small. It has a few historical artifacts but it mostly has text displays that I found interesting.

Lots of local history. Hamilton's house could use some fixing up but all in all there was a good summary of his life. On Tuesdays they have s little bugger garden set up.

For an informative explanation of the history of Nevis a visit to this museum is worthwhile. It is adjacent to the Alexander Hamilton house so visits can be combined. Should be included in your island tour.

You may pass over this building and think nothing of interest, but you will learn something about the US forefathers. Tour both rooms (another is located across from the entrance) to take in all that is there. For an Island that is Not Amercsn, found it worthwhile to visit. No photos allowed!

Doesn't look too inspiring but although the exhibits are a bit rubbish I thought it did a good job of explaining Neves history and I enjoyed it.

This museum does a very good job of researching the history of the island from the earliest of inhabitants to the settlement of the island by the Europeans. There are some good artifacts and interesting information. It is simply done, so do not expect a big city type of exhibit. All said, they even have a lot of interesting information... More

This is a small local museum in Hamilton's birthplace, and contains several interesting displays on Nevis history. Some are peeling, though, or stacked behind other items. A sort-out and tidy-up would be beneficial.

Lots to read and a little short of extras to bring the history to life but a good background to the history of Nevis and the Caribbean. Well worth half an hour if you're staying on Nevis. The second building on Hamilton was of less interest.

Very small with a modest collection but well worth the time it took to find it and find the parking area. Small entrance fee - knowledgeable and friendly greeter. Much information about Nelson and some good artifacts. Needs better outdoor signage.
