Museum gives the history of Jersey from very ancient history through to modern times. It caters for all age groups. The Merchants House brings a period of history alive in a different way.

This museum is great lots to look at. We took our 8 year old daughter who has been before, she still loved it. Especially the house! Also we all loved to see the coin hoard, it was very interesting. They change bits of the museum every now and then, which is great for regular visitors. Look forward to returning soon.... More

We left the museum to our last morning before catching our flight. This was a mistake. There is so much in this well laid out exhibit. The audio visual gives an excellent start and then to see some of the featured items as exhibits enhances the experience. Give yourself time to enjoy the museum to the full.

Centrally located and well worth a visit. Jersey is much more than just the German occupation. You can see the work being done to clean up the articles found in the treasure hoard which contains both gold and silver items.

This museum is situated near the harbour in St Helier. It provides information on history throughout the ages including the geology of the island. It is very comprehensive and includes a short film. The ticket includes viewing a historic house attached to the museum. An hour should be allowed to do justice to the museum. The museum trip could have... More

The Jersey Museum can be best described as a mixed bag. There is some really fascinating displays and some that give you pause...as in "Huh?". The best examples of the latter includes the WWI exhibit and the the coin cache from 100 AD. I'm still puzzled by the prison pepper mill. All in all though it is well worth the... More
