I love history, so I was a little disappointed that a little funding wasn't put into the property to make it look more like when Hamilton did actually live here. There were only a few small items that were period pieces and a lot of...More

I was really excited to visit the location. However its just 2 rooms, no furnishings, and a bunch of signs to read. Admission is $5 US and I felt like I would have spent my time better by reading a book about Hamilton.

Not much to see or do in Nevis but at least this spot has history. You need to take a ferry from St. Kitts and the museum is a short walk. There is a small museum but it needs enhancement. Definitely bring a $10 bill...More

An important part of the Islands history however with very little funding this historical site is poorly maintained. A good stop but don’t expect to stay more than a few minutes.

If you like to read and learn the exhibit is definitely worth a few hours. I enjoyed learning about Hamilton while the music of Hamilton the musical played in the background.

I'm not sure. You'll have to check w/ hotel concierge or local taxi driver/tour guide. There are days in the week the town do not open for business such as Sunday reserved for worship.
