If you are interested in the colonization of Nevis and Alexander Hamilton, you will enjoy the detailed research and written materials in this exhibit. Not really a lot about Hamilton's birth, really - more about his life and times. The Nevisian slave history was fascinating, again if you have historical interests. The fee was $5 per person and it is a small exhibit - perhaps a 20' room. Worth it if you want to understand who the man was behind the portrait on the US $10 bill. Have you ever noticed Hamilton is the only one looking to his right? All the other portraits on US bills are looking to the left.

Wish I had visited the museum before seeing the broadway show , Hamilton. It was a small museum, but summarized the life and contributions of Alexander Hamilton. I would highly recommend.

There is not that much "historic" about the island itself so this was a stretch to visit the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton. It isn't expensive so it is worth at look. Like other reviewers said no photos are allowed inside which was a nice way of saying "buy something from us", but some of the relics were interesting.

The Hamilton House was a museum dedicated to his accomplishments rather than his actual birthplace. No photos are allowed, and admission averages $5 U.S. It's worth a visit if you have time to read the biographic descriptions in the displays while the Broadway cast recording is heard in the background.

The Hamilton House Museum is one room filled with a few relics from Nevis' history and some poster board describing Alexander Hamilton's life. Photography is prohibited inside, so I can't even show you how lame the displays are.

It is located on grounds right next to where the American patriot was born and lived until the age of nine. A restaurant sits on the actual site where Hamilton was born.

There is nothing from Hamilton's life in the museum. Not even a decent description of his life as a child.

Its really just a way to collect American tourist dollars. In fact admission for Americans is $5.00 and for locals admission is about $0.37 (1 ec).

Save your money.
