Well presented museum stuffed full of really interesting exhibits. Worth a visit for the introductory film alone. We left it to our last day to visit which, in hindsight, was a mistake as we could not spend as much time here as we would have liked. Next time we visit St. Helier this lovely museum will have a higher priority.

Loved looking around the mansion house. Pleasant visit liked that we could just wander around. Some areas were quite dark and you had to take care on the stairs

We started with a wander round the shop where I found a book I had been trying to find all week (out of print) and they had three copies. Next stop was a visit to the cinema and an interesting film on the history of Jersey. We followed a route which included an interesting exhibition on the clothing of marriage... More

It is most likely unfair to give a bad grade for this museum as it was indeed closed for us. Please strike out this poor grade. However, our 4 year old was really sad, when we walked all the way here and then the doors were closed. I tried to explain to her the situation, but she did not accept... More

The museum has a series of themes to illustrate aspects of Jersey life and history. They are well thought out with about the right amount of information for a 1-2 hour visit. Adjoining the museum is the Merchant's House, a must see timewarp from the 19th century.

I stayed for a couple of hours and found it really interesting. However, I can't give it five stars because some of the labels were really difficult to read and I felt many items could be better displayed. Also the gift shop does not reflect the quality of the items in the Museum.

This museum covers many periods of jersey history with a part of the museum set up as the period the house at the time the building was built. Many exhibits and all grouped in the periods of time
