This is the personal collection of a notable Jersey engineer and mechanic, amassed over decades from the 1930s to the 1990s. As such it is a delightfully random assortment of agricultural equipment, trains, cars and even organs (!). Every corner and turn reveals something unexpected and fascinating. There is no rhyme or reason to it, just whatever caught the varied... More

We visited this museum and I was pleasantly surprised to find a fascinating collection of predominantly agricultural vehicles and items - and it is well worth seeking out. The man on the kiosk desk was very helpful, knowledgable and keen to impart his local knowledge. The majority of exhibits seem to have been collected and restored by the late Mr.... More

A great collection of memorabilia and information. Managed to visit on a day when the train was not running but am sure that it's worth going on that day. Shame there wasn't a 'proper' café as we would have spent more time (and money) there

First, if you go by bus it's a ten minute stroll from the main road. A lovely stroll, granted, but it's not mentioned in any of the literature and it wouldn't be funny if you were pushing a wheelchair, for example. Secondly, they only take cash. Not even debit cards. Again, that isn't mentioned anywhere and as someone who rarely... More

Roads in Jersey are terrifyingly tiny and you think you are going down the tiniest lane... only to be met by the best museum I have seen of its type with lovely old cars and machines. We had a BALL.

Wasn't expecting too much but how mistaken. It's rammed with interesting stuff of all shapes and sizes. Managed to spend 3 hrs here with a 6 and 4 year old. I do have a mechanical interest which probably helped but with a reasonable entrance fee it's one for everyone.

Such a huge collection of interesting things, from massive steam rollers and a locomotive (they fire this up and run it on Thursdays), down to an eight-track car stereo player from the 70s/80s (did anyone really think they were a good idea?). Brings it home when you see your mum's washing machine that you remember from childhood! Having 'Steam and... More

Didn't expect such a lot of different things to keep us gazing and reading for ages! Steam wasn't on during our visit but I am known for my steam Videos so it didn't matter at all. And all these cars I once owned! It was difficult to pass by without a little hug! The Renault 4; I replaced pistons and... More

Enjoyed a very interesting and nostalgic visit. There really is something for everyone here and will appeal to all ages. It is well worth visiting on a Thursday when you can have a steam train ride to add to the experience. Some of the exhibits are a bit dusty and cobwebby but somehow this is part of the place! It...
