The visit can start with the historic building facing the bookshop. Then you can enter the gardens and the museums. Very nice artifacts and views. Nice photos. Do not miss the marvelous bookshop and the noon day gun. Worth the visit indeed.

We were limited for time when we visited this museum, I would recommend allocation of a full half day to fully appreciate what is available. On a sunny day the green areas within the castle provide nice areas to relax and possibly enjoy a picnic....More

The story of Guernsey comes to life here through exhibitions, acting, tradition and the building itself. Especially good are the noonday gun (hint, arrive before noon) and the mini drama that was performed indoors after as it was wet outside. The exhibits are well looked...More
