Spent around two hours at the museum learning about the history of jersey. The most interesting part was to learn about the recent find of a large amount of coins that have been cleaned and restored. Worth a visit

A really sound depiction of Jersey through the ages. Displays and interactive features are both interesting and easy to use. The films shown near the entrance helped tremendously in putting the remainder of the museum into perspective. I found the visit to be both interesting and pleasant. A little more for the seasoned museum visitor rather than families or someone... More

The Jersey Museum was very informative and a good way to pass an hour or two. The film at the beginning was very well made and interesting (was expecting it to be boring if I am honest!) and there was a good range of exhibits - not just about the Occupation which seems to be the main thing everywhere else!...

I liked the very rare opportunity given to all visitors to watch how the recently found coins are cleaned and polished.

a mixture of social history of Jersey St Helier and art and artefacts. The original house adjoining he museum gives a great insight into the social history of the town and the archaeological finds on the island are worth spending time on. The museum is well worth a visit and once you have purchased your ticket you are free to... More

A very informative film at the beginning. The Merchants house set up was very well done a bit disappointed with the art section. A little expensive at £9.30 per person

Interesting place, friendly staff. Bit of a noisy school party when we were in, and couldn't seem to get the Merchant's House videos to play in English (I understand French though!). But a great museum for a smallish place, open in winter and easier to get to than the zoo.

In all the advertising for the island and all the attractions, what they forget to advertise that most of them are closed for the winter. From November to April they are mainly closed except for an odd day here and there. To be able to see most of the attractions you need to visit April onwards
