The Museum of Nevis History features a variety of exhibits spanning the history of Nevis and present of Nevis. From environmental studies, Nevis history, and even some international history including a entire section dedicated to Alexander Hamilton.


There are several main areas of the museum that all offer different aspects of history and learning. One floor, dedicated to Horatio Nelson, shows the history of Nelson, his career in the English Navy, and the role he played in securing England's hold in Europe and the Caribbean. Another room is dedicated completely to the environment and the Nevis ecosystem. Of course, the main focus of the museum revolves around Nevis history in general.
