For brief (read: quick) overview of the history of St. Kitts and Nevis, the National History Museum is what you're looking for. Housed in a historic building in its own rite, this museum is a great option for those who already have a jam-packed schedule.
The National Museum is a small, three room history museum that brings guests through the pre-Columbian era through today with very basic exhibits. While there is no tour guide available, placards provide insight into the history of the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis. Natural history and the sugar industry are discussed among other topics.
The National Museum is housed in the old Basseterre Treasury Building, a British style structure known as the "Gateway to Basseterre."
Downtown Basseterre is a good option for those wishing to visit National Museum, because travelers to this area of St. Kitts will have convenient access to the museum during their visit. With only a small number of hotels around the neighborhood around this museum, much less foot traffic should be anticipated.
