“Learn some US history during your stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Great chance to learn about Alexander Hamilton (yes, the same Alexander Hamilton from US Revolutionary War history) and his connection to the Queen of the Caribbe. While this is not the Smithsonian, you shouldn't go expecting that anyway, there are quite a few nice exhibits for learning not only about Hamilton, but about the history of Nevis as well. Enjoy!

“Small but good stop”
Reviewed 20 November 2012

If you like history well you will like this. Alexander Hamilton's birthplace! We stopped here as well as the Horatio Nelson museum. Both were very good.

“Small Museum, But Interesting”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

This was a small museum, but had a lot of interesting information about the history of the Island. If you have 30 - 60 mnutes to spare and enjoy learning about the places you visit, I would recommend you visit here.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

Took my daughters - it was not what was expected. There were serveral posters that spoke about Hamiltion and his life. I found the information interesting but would of enjoyed seeing more artifacts, real documents, etc.

“Interesting facts about the life of this man.”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I would bet most people thing Alexander Hamilton was born in America, or Europe. Instead he was born on Nevis and on this piece of land. The house located here is not where most of the information on A.H. is located. For that you have to go next door, upstairs, where you will find the information on his life. It is my understanding that this and the Museum of Nevis History are being combined and information shifted around so when you read things may have changed.
