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.

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

Worth a visit to see well presented exhibition and learn history specific to Alderney. The volunteer working in the museum was very informative and interesting. Spent one hour here but could have stayed longer so plan for 1-2 hours to fully enjoy the whole museum.

This is a small museum but contains a wealth of information and artifacts relating to the island, especially the war years when the Germans occupied it completely. Very helpful staff (we were doing some family history research) who were keen to offer help and advice.
