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.

Well... since there is not a lot of cultural hot spots on the island and you are typically not on Nevis for this anyways... its a quick inexpensive way to spend an hour learning a little about the History of Nevis. Park to the left of the building in the grass area thru the gate.

I love small local museums and the Museum of Nevis History was great. It's full of very interesting and informative exhibits about pre-history, the Slave Trade, the Colonial Period, and the modern period of Nevis and also has good exhibits on the natural history of the island and the seas around it. There is very nice garden to sit in... More

This small and interesting museum offers a great overview of the history and character of Nevis. I would recommend visiting the museum first before touring the sights, it will enhance the experience.

The museum gives a good history of Nevis and all about life as it was and its development. It tells you all about the Nelson connections and the sugar plantaions. The lady receptionist is extremely helpful and full of extra interesting facts. We were lucky enough to be there for their Christmas Bazaar and bought some lovely locally made items... More

It is worth visiting this very small museum in order to learn some more about Nevis. There are individual exhibits on topics such as the history, archeology, geology, and natural history (seashells) of Nevis. The person at the front desk is very nice and will probably be able to answer any questions you might have. This museum is a good... More
