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.

I'm not sure. You'll have to check w/ hotel concierge or local taxi driver/tour guide. There are days in the week the town do not open for business such as Sunday reserved for worship.
