We made a special trip from our hotel just to visit Alexander Hamilton’s house. We were very disappointed that it was closed. I wish they had information about this on their website (I also wish the hotel knew to tell us).

We planned a trip to St. Kitts and Nevis with Alexander Hamilton's history in mind. Checked the hours and took the ferry over from St. Kitt's today. Everything is closed on Boxing Day- Tourism Office, shops, banks, and museums. We walked to find the house...More

The exhibit consisted of panels describing history of Nevis followed by Hamilton’s life. Glad we stopped in but not worth a special trip.

Museum is small but informative. I love reading/learning about history. It's worth a stop if you're in Nevis but not something I would say is a MUST see while visiting.

Don't expect some big, air-conditioned museum with priceless artifacts. This is the Caribbean and the weather conditions do not allow for anything too precious here. Nevertheless, it is a touching tribute to the native son of Nevis, without whom the good ole U.S.A. would not...More

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.
