Typically of SKN, there's a lot to read and learn – and not much to look at. You need to concentrate but it's worth it.

This attractions is actually two museums: Nevis History and Alexander Hamilton birthplace. I was mainly interested in Alexander Hamilton. Our experience was a thorough introduction to the history of Nevis (which I appreciated) with several artifacts but a very dry poster presentation about Alexander Hamilton's contribution to American history. There was nothing about the house itself and little about his... More

You are promised a museum in the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton, however you can take in 90% of what they have to offer by looking at the outside of the buildings. They are very few artifacts inside, more just billboards explaining his life. Use the internet instead. Definitely not worth the five dollar entrance fee.

Alexander Hamilton, as a founding father, has a history that is intertwined with the history of that of our country. So to be able to see where he was born was a treat. There is a lot of information and it is central to the 'downtown' area which is worth a visit.

Stopped here as part of an Island Tour was not to sure what to expect, however it was an interesting museum, lots of information on the Island and the History, worth a visit.

The house where Alexander Hamilton was born, on the island of Nevis, has been rescued from destruction and is worth a visit, albeit, a short one.

Worth a quick stop considering the role Alexander played in American history. Honestly not much to see. Quite a bunch to read if you have the time. Kind of surprising to see most of the artifacts displayed as they are in the open... not sure how that will work long term for them. Take a few pictures and then read... More

Many Americans probably didn't know about the rich history behind Alexander Hamilton. The museum itself isn't anything special, but the tour guide's explanation of Hamilton's life would be enlightening to most. Worth a stop; allow for about 15 minutes.

Not a lot to see here. Some interesting facts about Alexander Hamilton, but not enough to fill an afternoon. Could use some updating.

We arrived 10 minutes prior to closing and the lady told us sternly that she'd already closed the upstairs (the Hamilton rooms) and that we needed to mind the time in the museum. She then disappeared and didn't offer any kind of courtesy to us, not even to give us an overview of the museum. We thought the museum was... More
