The merchants house is very well presented with an intriguing story. The museum is equally well presented covering all aspects of Jersey life. The film introducing Jersey is one of the best 'museum' films I have ever seen. However it just isn't worth £9 per adult. The art gallery is tiny as are the other exhibits. You can be round... More

The museum is brilliant, and gives you a great insight to the islands history, we spent a few hours here, but you could spend the whole day and still not see it all.

This was our first trip to Jersey so we were keen to learn all about the Island's history. This is a nice little museum and a very pleasant way to spend a rainy morning. Allow about 2-3 hours as there is a 20 minute video at the beginning which is worth a watch. The museum is nicely organised and has... More

A lovely place to discover the history of Jersey from all perspectives, the current challenges and the potential future. The Merchant's house is also excellent for a wander round (included in price). For an explanation of Jersey that will put your holiday/visit in context it is well worth a look- and good value, too.

An excellent museum displaying the history of the Island, many fascinating artifacts and the introductory video was good. The Merchant's House was a real gem and great for my grandson to be able to dress up and play on the rocking horse without a warder breathing down his neck! It was exciting to see the Jersey hoard and watch people... More

Not much for kids here but very interesting for everyone else, very well presented. Seeing the celtic coin find actually being worked on in live laboratory was amazing and the fully furnished Merchant House with fab holograph displays are real insight

very interesting exhibits from the coin hoard which was being conserved as you watched, to the WWI exhibition and the Georgian House. Well worth a visit
