We took visitors around the Jersey museum last Saturday as it was raining and can highly recommend it. There is something for everyone. I especially think that if you live in Jersey, this is so interesting. The coin hoard was the star of the show and we were lucky enough to see them actually working on it. The rest of... More

Very Interesting journey through Jerseys Rich history from the prehistoric age to the present . The Merchants house was most interesting and informative . I didn't think 9 pounds for entry was too steep as it took a couple of hours to take in ... Well worth a visit .

An interesting meseum. Particularly recommend the high quality video of the history of the island. The Celtic hoarde is fascinating particularly as we saw it been worked upon. The Merchants house is ok but more information would have been useful. At £5 to visit it would have been a must. At £9 it is a bit more questionable. However at... More

A wonderful moment in time in the Merchants House as part of the Museum.Watching the Roman coins being restored and World war 2 snap shots in time were all very informative.

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.
