This is a tiny museum dedicated to Nelson and some of the history of Nevis. A charming collection of memorabilia some of the displays do need updating but nevertheless well worth the visit.

Was not sure what to expect, the museum contained the history of Nelson when he was on the Island, the displays are not great, they lack information for the reader, the displays seem to be stretched to fill the large spaces. There is a small...More

Please note that the current photo shown for this museum is incorrect. The actual building which is about 15 minutes walk from Charleston, is a single story wooden building in a residential area and there is not anything very pretty about it. Unfortunately the museum...More
