Good museum, quite small but packed full of information on historical events related to the German occupation and wartime activities, repatriation, early settlement, natural history and shipwrecks. Alderney in a nutshell.

Great place to learn more about the island. Did you know that supplies are only delivered once a week, on a Tuesday! Or, that the island was occupied by Germany during WW2?

Was especially good to learn about Elizabethan wreck. Liked the children's interpretation of war time - sad to know all islanders were evacuated

Charming, old fashioned museum. The displays are quite old fashioned but it all adds to the charm. I saw that they won and award for the best museum on limited funds and this says it all.

A good place to start to learn more of the history of the island, particularly WW2. Take your time, the museum is well laid out and there are plenty of explanatory charts/exhibits. It is surprising on how much history there is on such a small island.
