As a top adventurer, your quest is to use your Jersey Heritage Scrapbook to discover all the secrets, stories and brilliant facts that you can find at the Jersey Heritage Sites, Discovery Days, special family events and NEW Discovery Workshops throughout the year. This year, Jersey Heritage is producing three editions of the Jersey Heritage Scrapbook Series – delivered for free to all Key Stage 1 Primary School children across the Island.

 

What are Discovery Days and Family Events?

They are special activity days held at one of the seven Jersey Heritage Visitor Sites. Jersey Heritage will also be hosting special themed events at the sites throughout the year; these events are similar to Discovery Days and are aimed to be fun for all the family to enjoy. To find out what’s on, click here! In partnership with Mourant Ozannes.

 

How much does it cost?

All activities and quizzes on the Discovery Days are free to do. Normal site admission charges apply, but for just 90p a month*, join Jersey Heritage as a member. This will give you your very own ‘key to the castle’ so that you can discover and explore any of the Jersey Heritage Visitor sites, Discovery Days and special events as much as you like, absolutely free!

Discovery Workshops *NEW IN 2014*

These NEW workshops are designed to give the children more time to make, do and discover. Led by local artist and teacher, Jo Howell, these workshops will let the children have longer to make something and have the opportunity to discover and be inspired by the sites and collections of Jersey Heritage. For children aged 8 to 11 years old. In partnership with Mourant Ozannes. Booking in advance is essential as there are limited spaces available on each workshop. Please download the booking form associated with your chosen workshop and send it to Jersey Heritage along with full payment – Click Here for more information!

 

Discovery Six Sites of Summer *NEW IN 2014*

During the school summer holidays, visit each Jersey Heritage visitor site and discover new stories and have a go at art activities, trails, crafts and games. Each week visit a different site to do a different theme. Visit them all over the summer and collect a Six Sites of Summer certificate! Click here for more information.

 

 

We make the sites and museums that we look after fun places to be. We make sure there are activities for you to do, people to see, action to ‘WOW’ at, with plenty of learning for schools and families. We also research different aspects of the Island’s history to provide an accurate basis for all the fun things and exhibitions we do.

Jersey Heritage uses the collections and the sites to give meaning to the past. We tell the stories of Jersey and its people and help you to create your own history.
