Nevis has three museums and numerous other interesting attractions scattered all around the island. 

The three small museums are located reasonably close to each other.  In the northern end of the Capital, Charlestown, there is the Alexander Hamilton Museum within the stone house which was the birthplace and childhood home of Alexander Hamilton.  This museum is located in the ground floor below the assembly room of the Nevis Parliament, which is on the upper floor.

In the middle of Town, the Nevis Government has set up a Sports Museum which is mainly about cricket (the sport of the West Indies). 

South of town is the Nelson Museum, named after Horatio Nelson, who as a young sea captain was stationed on Nevis for a while. Here he met and married a young Nevis plantation widow, Fanny Nisbet. Their marriage took place near Montpelier.  It takes 25 minutes to walk from the Nelson Museum to the Hamilton Museum at a slow pace, enjoy the 18th and 19th century architecture as you walk along.

One unusual free attraction is the natural volcanic hot spring by the historic Bath Hotel, only a very short walk from town, and just down a dirt path, not at all far off the main road.  Just keep asking people along the way to point you in the right direction.  It is not far from the Nelson Museum. Here, at an outdoor sheltered bathing spot, you can soak your feet, or if you wish, your whole body, in the very hot, volcanic waters of the Bath Spring.

There is also a small, historic Jewish Cemetery in the centre of town.  It is the oldest Jewish Burial Ground in the Caribbean.

All the plantation inns and hotels have their own lovely gardens, and approximately 3 miles above town is the Botanical Garden of Nevis, which is near Montpelier.  This botanical garden is of moderate size, and it is very nicely put together, with beautiful views.

There are over 53 churches on Nevis (many historic, some dating back to 1643), each with their own architecture, paintings, or style, and they are to be found in the local communities.  All of the churches welcome visitors and are nice to see.

Nevis Island Government set up Heritage Village  which is small, quaint and unique to the Caribbean.  The Village shows you all the different building styles that have been used in Nevis' past, and they also make and sell local wine.  The Heritage Village is not Williamsburg or Jametown, VA, but it is nonetheless interesting.

Many ruins of old sugar estates are found along the roadside and hidden up the mountain, and at Coconut Walk, an old lime kiln is crumbling into the sea.
