Jersey Museum 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.

  • Warning, the staff on the till are rude if you try and pay for a group booking individually with cash. The staff at La Hougue Bie Museum were also a tad sharp.  more »
  • We visited the Museum and was amazed by how large the place was and how much fascinating information was available. A very interesting place to spend a few hours of your time in Jersey  more »
  • The Merchant house with its story was great on its own, but coupled with the 80's exhibit and the rest of the museum makes it a great attraction.  more »
