Who we are

Jersey Heritage is Gardien of our Island story.

Our Island story is rich and varied, fascinating and rare. It’s the narrative of our lives and those who came before us; providing context to who we are and the Island we live in. When something is so important, we must come together to protect it.

Jersey Heritage is Gardien of our Island story. We care for it, promote access to it, bring imagination to telling its stories and inspire others to do the same. As a charitable organisation we can only do this with your support. Through memberships, donations, volunteering and visits we will continue to preserve the Island’s memory and inspire people to create a better Island for everyone.

Registered Jersey Charity no. 411


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.
