Interesting historical info while waiting for the ferry

An interesting way to while away the time while waiting for the ferry back to St. Kitts -- who knew the Hamilton tie to Nevis?

I hope the Nevis tourist department sees this. There is so much missed opportunities here. The museum is one floor the size of a dining room and looks like a second grade class project. There is no hint of any interactive features that museums are upgrading and striving towards. Hamilton has been made relevant with the Broadway musical and this... More

This attraction is worth seeing in that it contains useful background information about Alexander Hamilton and is in the general location of his birth and first nine years. The staff informed us, though, that this was not his house and in fact is a much newer structure next door to the vacant lot where his birthplace stood.

We were very impressed with the quality and standard of this museum. Although a static display, it was very informative and very well laid out. Part of the museum is dedicated to the history of Nevis over thousands of years which clearly explained the significance of various factors over time. The other section is devoted to Alexander Hamilton and the... More

There is not much here that is reminiscent of Alexander Hamilton, other than the building itself, but the museum has a really interesting display upstairs of his life, with photos of the people who figured in this life. Downstairs there are quirky and informative displays about other aspects of local history. It had a genuine, grassroots feel and we learned... More

That Alexander Hamilton was born on Nevis? His births site is a nice little museum with an interesting summary of the colonial history of Nevis and a bit about his life. The museum is two rooms packed with information, and costs $5 US

The museum is small and simple but worthwhile for an overall understanding of Hamilton and Nevis history.

This is a two story museum, the bottom floor is local history, the upper floor is specific to Hamilton. It is made up of a portable exhibit that tells the story of his life and family including bits from his very early life. Aside from the house itself there are no artifacts or reproductions from his time here. The staff... More

A must see in Nevis, to visit a piece of history. An honor to be in the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton. One museum admission fee gives entry to the other museum across the way too. There's much to read about & to learn.
