A hassle free way to self-discover the history of Nevis. The displays are clearly laid out with adequate narrative. Very affordable entry fee.

This museum is small, but filled with great facts about the history of he island. Plus, it is located on the same lot as Alexander Hamiltons home. Great to visit both sites in one trip.

The history of the museum gives and overview of the original Arawak natives but focuses quite a bit on Nevis's most famous son, Alexander Hamilton. Small but fun and informative.

The "museum" doesn't allow for pictures to be taken inside. My think I know why...not much to see in this "self-guided" walk around the room.

Yes, this museum is tiny, but it's worth the five US dollars to gain entry. If you take the time to read your way around the museum, you'll find exhibits and information from the pre-history of Nevis up through the excitement of Alexander Hamilton's dueling...More

The museum was small but learned about Alexander Hamilton who was born at that site but not in the house. Never knew he wasnt born in the US.

One room, mostly text and unimpressive, unimaginative display. Nevertheless, the building from the outside is beautiful and the text on Alexander Hamilton is interesting. All the text, on the history of Nevis, is interesting. Just unimaginative. And overpriced entrance fee considering. Nevertheless, worth a visit.

It's a small museum with few items inside. The price is inexpensive though. It's good they kept the building maintained.

A small museum about Nevis and Alexander Hamilton in particular - he was born in the house. Worth a visit & my daughter was pleased to buy a Hamilton badge!
