“A dip into history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

A compact but interesting collection of artefacts and information about the history of the little known island. Low cost entrance fee but be aware of the noon closing time.

“An interesting mixture of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We spent an enjoyable 2 hrs browsing the exhibits, learning more about life on the island during the war, the shipping wrecks in the vicinity and viewing the art exhibition on local scenes. Run by volunteeers.

“Gannet and shag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We explored this museum when rain stopped our walking holiday. We knew quite a bit about the distressing history of Alderney but the exhibits here brought the experience into sharp relief.
Although compact,there is plenty to see here for a couple of hours or so......Napoleonic history, occupation history, wildlife exhibits including local sea birds and local art.
Really well laid out with helpful voluntary staff in attendance. Outside is a yellow phone box and a blue postbox....typical Alderney!
