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!

This museum has put together the history of Alderney in a very interesting but historically accurate way. It covers the earliest days in pre history to days of the Napoleonic fort building era and the regrettable German occupation. Find the items about the return if the islanders in 1946, and the story of the boy in the wardrobe! Also visit... More
