We were in St. Kitts on a Royal Caribbean port call. After our morning excursion to Brimstone Hill and Romney Manor, we had time in town before returning to the ship. We enjoy museums and were not disappointed in this little gem in the old Treasury Building within easy walking distance of the pier. While not elaborate or particularly modern, the museum has colorful displays and artifacts. I particularly enjoyed the costumes and pictures from early island history. The large rooms on the second floor were cooled by large fans. If the doors were kept closed to hold the cool air, it was comfortable.
The nominal $3.00 fee was well worth the 45 minutes we spent. A few souvenir items were available for purchase on the ground floor where the tickets are sold. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We did not see the steel drum others have mentioned.
We enjoy learning about country flags and symbolism. The national flag for St. Kitts and Nevis is green for fertile land; yellow for the ever present sunshine; black for the African history; red for the years of struggle from slavery through independence. The two white stars on the black diamond bar symbol hope and liberty.
If you are looking for a quiet place to spend time learning more about the island, I recommend the museum.
