Some interesting exhibits about the history and wildlife in the island - an hour or so is probably enough to see it all, especially with kids. Takings from the little shop contributes to upkeep - very enthusiastic and friendly staff who will tell you anything you want to know - and more!

Very good even for small children. There was a world war 2 bedroom with children's costumes to dress up in and there was another children's area with a game to entertain. There was also a computer with a microscope that I enjoyed using. It was also full of interesting things for the adults all in a small but bigger than... More

This was my second visit to the museum. Knowledgable local chap on reception. Museum is only £3 entry fee and whilst small there is a good hours worth of stuff to see. The World War Two exhibition is particularly interesting. They also have different exhibitions on so something new to see.

At the risk of sounding patronising, I was amazed by how enthralling this museum was, but then Alderney has a fascinating history, especially during WWII so it was both interesting and poignant at the same time. Curators were helpful and it is definitely worth the nominal £3 entrance fee that goes towards the upkeep of the museum. It is situated... More

This is an interesting and deceptively large museum - for such a small island. There is much to see of interest to most people and it's a great place to go when it's raining!

Well laid out museum, very chatty and knowledgeable curators, certainly gives the visitors the full history of the Islands and the various occupations of the island especially the Greman occupation. I thought the forts and various ramifications were built by the Germans, but they were built by the Victorians, the Germans made good use of the and converted to their... More
