Really not much to see, $5 to get in. Guess if you are in the area you might as well see it but again would not go out of my way for it.

This museum is just one room, but it is packed with displays and information on Hamilton, from birth to death. There were some pictures, and some artifacts from digs. I found it worth the stop for it’s historical value.

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
