  • Much more than a museum, a great place to visit anytime, comfortable surroundings, location ideal in St Helier town, our crew especially enjoyed the visit to the maritime museum nearby. We think its really important when visiting different countries and regions to get to know more about the history, it just makes the visit more enjoyable and interesting.
  • Worth every penny spent! The sheer detail of every era of Jersey is laid out meticulously. Enjoy a great day out, especially if you want a great overview of the history of Jersey.
