This is the site of Alexander Hamilton's home. Hamilton was born in Nevis on 1/11/1757. This is a small museum that charges a nominal fee for entry.

Located in the same stone building as information on Alexander Hamilton, it provides some background on the history of the island. While the display information is somewhat limited, given its close proximity to the port it is certainly worth a visit.

Lot of exhibits and information about the first people to inhabit the islands. Great history of the subsequent colonization and demise of the sugar plantations.

This is the same place as "The birthplace of Alexander Hamilton" and inside is a little of both. As I put in my other review, there isn't much too this, but it is interesting if you are a fan of Hamilton.
