Best in the Channel Islands

This small museum rates with any other small museum in the British Isles. It deals with all aspects of the island and is supported by a strong Alderney Society.

Small museum which has various artefacts but does not adequately tell the story of Alderney in WW2, which seems to me to be the most interesting part of its history. Worth a visit but I learnt more from travelling around the island with a guide book.

Personally I would have liked more on the early phases of Alderney, While there is a little on the stone age it would have been useful to have this period ,when Alderney was not an island ,more fully explored. Equally it would have been interesting to have more focus on the period when Alderney had a patois and an exploration... More

By seeking out I mean not so much the location (very close to the main street) but fitting in with the restricted opening hours - something that seemed to be common across Alderney and which, to be fair, added to the charm and feel of this small island. For me, the museum gave some context to the island and its... More

A small museum but well worth visiting when on Aldernet. The museum covers the history of the island including occupation during WW2.

Very good for a small museum mainly run by volunteers. Good insight into the Nazi occupation and the evacuation of the Islanders

......,,,,ashamed to admit that if we hadn't had a couple of hours to kill before catching a flight we wouldn't have visited at all! 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

This rather large museum (by Channel Island standards) has an unusually large assortment of displays. The displays are well documented and explained, hold good interest, and provide a nice relaxing introduction to Alderney and all of the Channel Islands.

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. A lot of research and care has gone into this museum. The staff were very informative. I particularly liked the wildlife section and learning about notable islanders. Check the... More
