St Annes Church is magnificent. A must see when in Alderney. The history is amazing and the stained glass just stunning. You must visit this once in a lifetime experience.

This covers the full range of Alderney's history, geological and human, including a good section on the German occupation and Alderney's maritime history. Good gift shop too. Well worth the modest £3 admission

Spare an hour during your trip to Alderney and immerse yourself in the history of such a fascinating place. The exhibits are all curated with huge care, and all the staff know a lot more than the notices actually tell, so do ask questions. We loved it!

Great little local museum with some very interest exhibits. We all enjoyed our visit including our teenage children. Well worth a visit, the local volunteers who work hard to run this place are very visitor friendly.

There is so much to enjoy in here - we spent our first morning here and could have spent longer - there is so much about the history of the island, the wrecks, the occupation, the forts, the natural history, lots of excellent artefacts, from Tudor cannons raised from the wreck, to oral history from islanders who remember being evacuated...

The Museum is beautifully maintained and thorough in its history of the Island. Surprisingly creative for such a small island!
