This is the same place as "The birthplace of Alexander Hamilton" and inside is a little of both. As I put in my other review, there isn't much too this, but it is interesting if you are a fan of Hamilton.

Agree with oreviois reviewer this is the same as Hamilton house. There is information on Hamilton, and the history of Nevis amd slavery. Worth a visit, but mainly reading the history from printed sheets on the walls. Worth a visit though as the history needs to be told.

This is the same as Hamilton's house but they do provide a history of the island matched with a timeline of other events around the world. Learnt quite a bit - especially if you have already been on an island tour to put placed in perspective

This would be a good place to start your visit of Nevis. They highlight all the cool, historical things to do. It's right next door to the Alexander Hamilton House.

We visited on a tour of the island. The main building is not available to tour but there are several other buildings on the property that are accessible. There were no staff on premises but our island tour guide was very knowledgeable. There is a lot of the history of the island that is shown at this site.

Disappointing as we were trying to find out information on old plantations on Nevis and the staff didn't really help much.

This museum is situated in the building that was birthplace of Alexander Hamilton. I believed that I would be touring a restored 18th century home, so I was disappointed to find one room of local artifacts and no home tour. That being said, the disparate collection was interesting to see, but don't plan on more than 15-20 minutes for your... More

In restored stable from grounds of Alexander Hamilton's birthplace, with historical exhibits from original Indian settlements through pirates and colonial settlement and plantations. Worth the price of admission, which includes Alexander Hamilton's birthplace house on the grounds.

The museum of Nevis History and Christina Monument is a charming and well thought out display in a compound near on the coast in Basseterre, that one can walk to from the ferry terminal. It houses artifacts from the earliest Amerindian settlers and includes items from the slavery days as well as details from the life of Nevis-born Alexander Hamilton... More

First stop on our tour around the island, Alot of great history around Nevis. You need a guide to tell you the story behind the building and the area.
