Jersey Museum & Art Gallery presents history from 250,000 years ago when the first people arrived in Jersey and explores the factors that have shaped this island and the people who live there. Be sure to find some of the most iconic objects from Jersey’s past, including a real mammoth skull from the Ice Age and a priceless gold torque from the Bronze Age. On display in the art gallery, you will find the work of Claude Cahun, recognized worldwide as one of the leading artists of the Surrealist movement. This museum cares for one of the largest collections of Cahun's work, which comprises photographs, original manuscripts, first editions, books and other personal material. You can also step inside the beautifully restored merchant’s house for unique exhibits and performances. Refreshments and a gift shop are on site.

Nice place but not exciting. Partly in an old merchants house, partly new. Wide variety of exhibits and a lot of them. Cafe on ground floor is a bit trendy, busy at lunchtimes. more »
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.
