Great little museum in the Centre of Charlestown. It may be small but there is a lot of information in there about the island and it's people

“Extremely interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

The museum gives a good history of Nevis and all about life as it was and its development. It tells you all about the Nelson connections and the sugar plantaions. The lady receptionist is extremely helpful and full of extra interesting facts. We were lucky enough to be there for their Christmas Bazaar and bought some lovely locally made items - the honey , little handpainted tiles and a beautiful pottery lizard.

“A pleasant small museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

It is worth visiting this very small museum in order to learn some more about Nevis. There are individual exhibits on topics such as the history, archeology, geology, and natural history (seashells) of Nevis. The person at the front desk is very nice and will probably be able to answer any questions you might have.

This museum is a good place to stop into when you are walking on the waterfront in Charlestown. There are some items for sale; maybe you will feel inspired to buy a book on Nevis or on the Caribbean flora and fauna in general.

“Helps to understand more about Nevis...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Very small museum summarizing the most important information on Nevis history. It helped me to understand more about Nevis. Even it's just small exposition to read all the information took about 20-30 minutes.
