So interesting, all of it. £3.00 entrance fee. To see the trauma people of Alderney went through during the Second World War was incredible, especially when they returned after the war to see their dwellings ruined.

It is hard to write about this small museum with a large story to tell. I just cannot say more without spoiling the surprise.

A small but well put together museum. It tells the Alderney story, if what briefly. it is interesting and holds the attention of many age groups. Good display of guns from the Second World War.

An enthusiastic and informed group of people who run the museum. Many useful, clear displays from the Stone Age up to World War 2 and closer to the present day. Some child friendly displays and activities and rooms with a nautical theme showing the island's sea connection. The World War 2 German occupation is particularly well covered. Well worth it...

The highlights were an excellent exhibition covering the maritime wrecks of Alderney, and the 1st hand recollections of WW2 Alderney. I was also impressed with the computer microscope which had rock samples from around... More

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
