Who We Are - Jersey Heritage

Jersey Heritage is a local charity that protects and promotes the Island’s rich heritage and cultural environment. We aim to inspire people to nurture their heritage in order to safeguard it for the benefit and enjoyment of everyone.


Registered Charity 161

Jersey Heritage was founded in 1981. We are an independent organisation that receives an annual grant from the States of Jersey to support our running costs. Admission income from visitors and support from sponsors are also vital to keep us operating.

In Jersey we are responsible for the island's major historic sites, award-winning museums and public archives. We hold collections of artefacts, works of art, documents, specimens and information relating to Jersey's history, culture and environment. These collections define the island, hold the evidence for its historical development and act as the community's memory.  Read our annual reviews, accounts and conservation reports here.
