A great little museum, a very interesting introduction to the island. Layout and presentation are excellent, staff are friendly and approachable, and there's a nice coffeeshop too. Don't miss out on the merchant's house - well worth a visit in it's own right.

Thanks for your excellent review of the museum.

this was a surprise, right in the middle of St Helier, so much to see and do and the history of the house and family was very interesting. Again their cafe was very good serving super sandwiches.

We visited as a couple and enjoyed the short film about Jersey’s long history, and learned a lot simply by watching this. The Merchant’s House was well set out and showed us how things were back in the day. The Museum had various exhibits from...More

What a shame you've not enjoyed the Island's museums. We update our exhibits at the Jersey Museum every year, with new exhibitions. The free film and Story of Jersey in 100 objects is a great way to get an introduction to Jersey.

Such an interesting museum with friendly and helpful staff. Lots on the history of the island with a good informative film. Spent a couple of hours there then had tea in the cafe which was excellent

Went here on a rainy day and really enjoyed the visit, especially the cabin and world map, great for children from 5 to 80!

The Merchants house, which goes up 3 floors, is well set out and shows how a Merchants house would have looked in days gone by. The rest of the museum is rather mixed bag. It is well presented.

We learned a lot of what happened during the war in Jersey that we wouldn't have known without visiting it.There was a nice cafe with nice choices for lunch or just as a coffee stop with a small shop.
