Owner description: 30 October to 23 December - Monday to Saturday 9am to 4pm Sunday 10am to 4pm . Jersey Museum presents history from 250,000 years ago when the first people arrived in Jersey and continues through the centuries to explore the factors that have shaped this unique island and the people who live here. Find out why Jersey remained loyal to the English Crown despite being so close to France; listen to Jersey-French being spoken; learn about the Island's traditional farming industry and watch fascinating archive footage of the early years of tourism.The Story of Jersey has won the Visit England ‘Best Told Story’ Accolade.Step inside the beautifully restored Merchant’s House and enter the drama of a Victorian family in crisis. The ghosts of the past - the desperate husband, the consoling wife and her accusing sister – are brought to life in a brand new audio-visual presentation.

Gary & Alan, the staff on last Saturday couldn't have been more informative & attentive. the museum is really interesting, & I particularly enjoyed the "hatched matched & dispatched" display that was there, although only temporary. the adjoining "merchants house" was really insightful.

Beautifully laid out and very freindly helpful staff. Do go and visit. There is access to a merchant's house and we visited the 'Hatched, Matched, Desptached' exhibition.

Food here was fabulous, four of us dined & all had 3 courses each & not one hint of a complaint from any of us!
Prices are extremely reasonable, probably the best value in Jersey.
Staff are so friendly & helpful with being OTT, a perfect combination all round. Definitely on our list of favourites for a return visit.
