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.

Very small museum summarizing the most important information on Nevis history. It helped me to understand more about Nevis. Even it's just small exposition to read all the information took about 20-30 minutes.

I borrowed "Ships Swords and Sugar" by Vinvent K Hubbard from the hotel library, and thoroughly enjoyed reading the history of this fascinating island as I lay by the pool. The museum in contrast was amateurish, shabby and not worth the effort ( or the entrance fee)

If you iwsh to learn about the origins and history of Nevis and its polulation then this is the plave to go. You can spend between say 30 minutes and an hour or more (depending upon your level of interest). The staff are knowledgeable and the visit brings home the history of this small island and community.
