A rebuild of the house that Hamilton was born in. Very authentic. A simple museum with quite a lot of local information. The Hamilton exhibition was in an adjacent hut. Musical fans may be visiting!

Great museum and tour of the early life of the American Statesman! A must see if you are on Nevis. Shows how the mind of the Federalist was formed.

We enjoyed going through it, but it is not a well polished high end museum. Very quaint and as informative as a really well done high school exhibit for social studies on back to school night. The internet has more detailed and complete information. The house is not his original house, which was destroyed by an earthquake, so no real... More

As an employee of the Bank of NY Mellon, visiting Alexander Hamilton's house felt like a rite of passage. The museum itself is very basic, we learned some interesting facts about a true patriot and a smart man. It was a cool experience to walk into the actual house where he lived in as a child.

This was somewhere we wanted to go to and decided to take a tour of the island and our driver stopped here. First this and the museum of Nevis are very very small. It's interesting and informative and they are proud of their museum but you will find it difficult despite the interesting subject to spend more than 30 mins.... More

The preserved history of Nevis was so educational and a Tour worth taking. The Alexander Hamilton House was amazing. So happy I had opportunity to experience this piece of history.

A small but very interesting museum in the house where Ahmilton was born. Worth a visit. Then have lunch at the neighboring Café d' Arts.

Stopped by the Alexander Hamilton House on a short van tour of Charlestown. Frankly, there's not much to see either at the house or in Charlestown itself. Given a choice, a walk around town and some of the historical sites would be much better than driving. There's some history here and the collection of old buildings is interesting if you're... More

Most interesting but very poorly laid out and all looking very dated. With a little effort this small room could be transformed, some of the print was so small you could not read it.

The stone building that houses the Nevis history museum was actually the stable for the Hamilton family and the tiny frame house next door was where Alexander was born. In it there is a timeline display that includes the highlights of his life from birth to his death in a duel. Although the displays in both buildings were limited, they... More
