It was a real joy going round this museum, learning the history of Jersey through the years. The Lillie Langtry story and the wonderful paintings of her. We spent over 2hrs in there and there is seated area where you can watch films. Last but not least the hoard of coins being cleaned and on show jewellery and other treasure... More

Well laid out, very informative, lots of excellent stuff to see, what more could you want. Paints a good history, some interesting art and old merchants house (the smell of gas alerted us and the staff to a possible gas leak from the gas lights!). Good cafe with free wifi, allow a couple of hours and don't forget your Art... More

The photos week worth seeing but this was blown away by the latest on the Hoarde. Yes it had moved and now you can actually see gold jewelry, bracelets a... More

The Museum presents the material well and the work on the coin hoard is both well explained and visually impressive. The history of the island is explained in a well organised way, though the merchant house left us underwhelmed. The main disappointment was the complete lack of any coherent story about the natural history (flora and fauna) of the island.... More

Lovely as every time we have visited (as we are local). Coin Hoarde was very interesting and worth seeing, especially the laboratory! Great film at the beginning which really showed Jersey well through the ages. JEP section was great to see what has been reported through the years. Worth a visit.

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
