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!

It covers the earliest days in pre history to days of the Napoleonic fort building era and the regrettable German occupation.

The exhibits are well displayed and comprehensively cover the history and wildlife of the... More

Very well planned and laid out and overall extremely interesting if you want to find out about Alderney's history. The information about the German occupation was particularly well done and very touching.
