“A Good Place to Start in Nevis”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This small and interesting museum offers a great overview of the history and character of Nevis. I would recommend visiting the museum first before touring the sights, it will enhance the experience.

Great little museum in the Centre of Charlestown. It may be small but there is a lot of information in there about the island and it's people

“Extremely interesting”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

The museum gives a good history of Nevis and all about life as it was and its development. It tells you all about the Nelson connections and the sugar plantaions. The lady receptionist is extremely helpful and full of extra interesting facts. We were lucky enough to be there for their Christmas Bazaar and bought some lovely locally made items - the honey , little handpainted tiles and a beautiful pottery lizard.

“A pleasant small museum”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

It is worth visiting this very small museum in order to learn some more about Nevis. There are individual exhibits on topics such as the history, archeology, geology, and natural history (seashells) of Nevis. The person at the front desk is very nice and will probably be able to answer any questions you might have.

This museum is a good place to stop into when you are walking on the waterfront in Charlestown. There are some items for sale; maybe you will feel inspired to buy a book on Nevis or on the Caribbean flora and fauna in general.
