“Interesting piece of US history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

From Nevis to the dueling grounds of New Jersey. Opinionated, forceful, and one of our most important forefathers. Father of the U.S. Coast Guard - although they don't mention that. Fun little museum that sheds more light on his earlier days. Worth the stop.

“Learn some US history during your stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great chance to learn about Alexander Hamilton (yes, the same Alexander Hamilton from US Revolutionary War history) and his connection to the Queen of the Caribbe. While this is not the Smithsonian, you shouldn't go expecting that anyway, there are quite a few nice exhibits for learning not only about Hamilton, but about the history of Nevis as well. Enjoy!

“Small but good stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

If you like history well you will like this. Alexander Hamilton's birthplace! We stopped here as well as the Horatio Nelson museum. Both were very good.

“Small Museum, But Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This was a small museum, but had a lot of interesting information about the history of the Island. If you have 30 - 60 mnutes to spare and enjoy learning about the places you visit, I would recommend you visit here.

“Enjoyable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Took my daughters - it was not what was expected. There were serveral posters that spoke about Hamiltion and his life. I found the information interesting but would of enjoyed seeing more artifacts, real documents, etc.
