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

We would encourage any visitors to Jersey interested in the Island and its history to pay a visit. We were not in Jersey for long enough to justify purchase of the visitor's pass which gets you into all of the heritage sites. However, we felt that the £9 admission to this museum was good value. The film presentation on ground... More

We visited this museum on our final morning before flying home. From the outside this museum didn't look that big. How wrong we were. We gave ourselves 2 and a half hours to visit this museum and it was not enough. There is so much to see. The restored and authentic mansion house is gorgeous and the interactive story of... More

Overall a very good museum with a film giving a good overview of the history of Jersey (better than the usual films of this type. You must visit the Celtic Coin hoard which was discovered a few years ago - mostly coins but some gold artefacts in there as well - and they haven't got to the bottom of the... More

Word of warning though, give yourself plenty of time we were a bit rushed at the end because we had a flight home to catch and... More
