Keep your expectations reasonable and you won't be disappointed. With limited resources they have done a lot. The visit is well worthwhile and it gives a good sense of what the island was lime

Within very short walking distance from the port if you take the boat ride over from st. kitts (and if you do I suggest renting scooters from Kevin at Nevis Scooter Rentals 869-664-7717, not expensive and worth every penny), it was an unexpected place to...More

Very basic story board style "museum" that gives a decent over view of the St Kitts and Nevis history and then an overview of the Alexander Hamilton life story. Its just very basic, nothing interactive, so temper your expectations. It was cool to stand outside...More

No, this is not one of the greatest historical museums that you have ever visited. However, suck it up and support the locals who are trying to promote their very real niche history. Pay the reasonable admission fee and spend 30 minutes reading about Alexander...More

Renovations were going on during our visit so all the exhitios were crowned into the main floor. However, this did no distract from the explicit and thorough information provided. I enjoyed it very much having read about Alexander Hamilton previously. He has an amazing man...More

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.

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.
