Undoubtedly one of the more interesting museums we have visited with excellent information of the wartime occupation and much, much more. Aided hugely by one of the museum staff who was incredibly knowledgeable! We highly recommend... More

Very good history of Alderney and local nature. Admission was £3. Within easy reach of the main town, but check the times as it does close for lunch.

The museum consisted of 2 rooms, plus a set up of a room for returning islanders and an exhibition room upstairs. Very detailed history, from early ages to the current years.

Surprising amount of artefacts in a small museum illustrating very simply the fascinating history of this unique island, from 5,000BC to the 1850 fortifications, to the German constructions WWII. Wonderful maritime displays too, especially the Elizabethan wreck display with 3 cannon, large wooden rudder, etc. Enjoyed learning from the knowledgeable staff.

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?
