Meet the Collections


Take a closer look at some of the unique objects and documents that Jersey Heritage cares for.


CRAFTING THROUGH THE AGES

Traditional crafts have long been a part of the way of life in Jersey and we have some wonderful things in our collections to demonstrate this, from quilts to woven baskets and pottery. We also have some amazing artwork from those interned at the Bad Wurzach camp during World War Two.

Preservation
