A fun trip and we learned a great deal that we didn't know. It is a small local museum but worth a stop! Located right in town.

This museum is next to and part of the Museum of Nevis History. Both the building containing the museum and the Alexander Hamilton House have been rebuilt so you're not seeing anything original. The Alexander Hamilton House contained a possibly temporary display about the life of Alexander Hamilton.

I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked, but lots of information on Hamilton's life and accomplishments.

Take time to visit both buildings - one is across the way - next to restaurant. Lots of interesting facts - much more than just about Alexander Hamilton.

If you arrive by public ferry you are greeted with the information that Alexander Hamilton was borne in Nevis. If you want to know about him this is the place. However if you know about his largely USA based exploits this visit will add little. Visit can easily be combined with a visit to the Nevis History Museum as part... More

The room were Hamilton was born and spent his first ten years of life is not accessible and is not promoted by the museum. It is however a great place to read about the Islands History and Hamilton's Life as displayed on wall boards. It costs $5.00 US and includes same day access to another museum nearby

The Alexander Hamilton House does their very best to describe the life of Alexander Hamilton, from his birthplace on Nevis, to his mark in history in the United States as the founder of the US banking system. Very well done. It is simple, but informative. Don't expect to visit a large museum. The exhibit is displayed in his original home... More

There are two buildings here on this single property--the Nevis Historical Museum and the Hamilton birthplace. The history museum is in the cool stone building. The artifacts inside are okay; not terribly exciting. I had been reading a book on the history of Nevis so I did not learn much but the casual visitor can glean lots of information about... More

We didn't pay an admission fee because there was a holiday craft fair going on inside the house, but there were informative boards about Alexander Hamilton along one wall. I believe there is a deal with the history museum available. Good café in the garden area. Short walk from the cruise dock.
