It is not the biggest museum you will ever visit but exhibits were on the whole interesting and it was quite informative. If I remember correctly the entry fee was £4 which is about as cheap as you can expect to pay. On balance it...More

This is an interesting and well presented museum. It is easy to reach by catching the 92 bus from St Peter Port. There is also a Roman shipwreck to view. We were impressed with the way everything was displayed.

Fort Grey Shipwreck museum is in a wonderfully unusual Martello tower on Guernsey's west coast. It hosts Guernsey's shipwreck museum, which is fitting when you realise the toll the dangerous rocks off this coast have taken on shipping over the years. The museum is small...More

The information about shipwrecks in this part of the world is well presented and makes for interesting reading. The building itself is interesting too. We used our Discovery pass to see this historic attraction.

Well worth a visit, it looks just like a cup and saucer. The museum is good and well laid out with excellent displays. There is a walkway out to the fort with a lot of steps to entrance. Tickets are purchased from Guernsey Pearl.
