We visited on a tour of the island. The main building is not available to tour but there are several other buildings on the property that are accessible. There were no staff on premises but our island tour guide was very knowledgeable. There is a lot of the history of the island that is shown at this site.

Disappointing as we were trying to find out information on old plantations on Nevis and the staff didn't really help much.

This museum is situated in the building that was birthplace of Alexander Hamilton. I believed that I would be touring a restored 18th century home, so I was disappointed to find one room of local artifacts and no home tour. That being said, the disparate collection was interesting to see, but don't plan on more than 15-20 minutes for your... More

In restored stable from grounds of Alexander Hamilton's birthplace, with historical exhibits from original Indian settlements through pirates and colonial settlement and plantations. Worth the price of admission, which includes Alexander Hamilton's birthplace house on the grounds.

The museum of Nevis History and Christina Monument is a charming and well thought out display in a compound near on the coast in Basseterre, that one can walk to from the ferry terminal. It houses artifacts from the earliest Amerindian settlers and includes items from the slavery days as well as details from the life of Nevis-born Alexander Hamilton... More

First stop on our tour around the island, Alot of great history around Nevis. You need a guide to tell you the story behind the building and the area.

We stopped by the museum and learned a bit about Nevis. The displays have good write ups. Although a small museum it was good. The lady running the place was very nice and helpful. We also got to go to the Alexander Hamilton House which is next door. Worth a stop if you are on Nevis.

We did not visit the museum, but stopped in to get a walking map of Charlestown. We were sincerely welcomed by Trisha, one of the employees at the museum. We let her know that we didn't plan to visit the museum at that moment, but wanted to get a brochure for the walking tour. She immediately pulled out a brochure... More

This is a nice, local little museum tucked in between the ocean (and the ferry in Charlestown) and the main road through town. Interesting artifacts and very simple timelines. Loved the local beekeeping exhibit!
