We are Jersey Heritage and we’re here to share our Island’s fascinating stories and places. We’re here to care for our unique history. We’re here to help you find your place in the story. And we’re here to make sure that these stories keep getting told
We are a local charity that receives an annual grant from the Government of Jersey to support our running costs. Income from visitors, Members, sponsors and commercial opportunities are vital to keep us operating. Registered Jersey Charity no. 411.
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.
As a charity, we need more than £4 million per year and over 12,000 voluntary hours to nurture, protect and animate the Island’s heritage. Support from all sectors of the community helps us to keep the Island’s heritage alive by protecting key sites and filling them with living history, events and exhibitions.
