Interesting in an historical perspective, but somewhat disappointing in the presentation inside. Basically storyboards in a basement that looks like something out of a middle school history fair. The architecture is worth looking at but I think the government should invest more in what could...More

Museum is small but informative. I love reading/learning about history. It's worth a stop if you're in Nevis but not something I would say is a MUST see while visiting.

The museum is very basic but one can tell that someone worked hard to try to tell 1) the story of Nevis and the people and 2) the story of Alexander Hamilton with a focus on Nevis. They could make more business on souvenirs (the...More

From born out of wedlock to becoming the leader member of President Washington's cabinet, it is apparent Nevis is proud of their historical hero.

If you are interested in the colonization of Nevis and Alexander Hamilton, you will enjoy the detailed research and written materials in this exhibit. Not really a lot about Hamilton's birth, really - more about his life and times. The Nevisian slave history was fascinating,...More

I'm not sure. You'll have to check w/ hotel concierge or local taxi driver/tour guide. There are days in the week the town do not open for business such as Sunday reserved for worship.
