Horatio Nelson Museum

Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson lived from 1758 to 1805, and although he was born in Anguilla, was stationed on the island of Nevis with the British Royal Navy long enough to fall in love with prominent local Fanny Nisbet. Now, tourists can learn about the life of the admiral via a collection of his personal belongings at the Horatio Nelson Museum.

What to Expect

Housing the largest collection of Horatio Nelson memorabelia in the western hemisphere, the Horatio Nelson Museum has exhibits that feature furniture from the Admiral's flag ship, paintings of him and his family, and personal letters.

Guests who happen upon the Nelson Museum will notice that it looks like a typical island house, with white paint, blue trim and brown shutters. A staircase with a blue railing leads to the front door.

Staying Close

You may enjoy staying in Charlestown if you plan on visiting Horatio Nelson Museum, since those visiting this part of St. Kitts will have easy museum access for the duration of their trip. With just a few accommodations around the region around the museum, a small amount of foot movement might be bargained for.
