Shows lots of local pride in their history. If you keep your receipt, you get a really big discount when you visit the Nelson museum.

That Alexander Hamilton was born on Nevis? His births site is a nice little museum with an interesting summary of the colonial history of Nevis and a bit about his life. The museum is two rooms packed with information, and costs $5 US

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.
