    About Jersey Museum & Art Gallery

    Discover the story of Jersey for free on the ground floor, watch our Story of Jersey film and take in our permanent display Jersey – 100 Objects.  Also free on the Ground Floor is the Aspiring Jersey Island Geopark Visitor Centre – the Island hub for information on exploring Jersey to see first-hand how geology has shaped and influenced the Island we know today.

    There’s more to discover at Jersey Museum & Art Gallery (admission prices apply). Explore Jersey’s history from  250,000 years ago when the first people arrived in Jersey and continues through the centuries to explore the factors that have shaped this unique Island and the people who live here. Find out about Jersey’s link with the English Crown despite being so close to France; listen to Jèrriais (Jersey-French) being spoken; learn about the Island’s traditional farming industry and watch fascinating archive footage of the early years of tourism. Find out about Jersey’s prosperity in A Prosperous Island exhibition as part of the Story of Jersey, sponsored by Jersey Finance.

    You can also visit our new exhibition (opens 19 July) – People Power Protest! is an exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

    Step inside the beautifully restored Victorian House and enter the drama of a Victorian family in crisis. On the evening of 27th August 1869, a momentous decision was taken by the family that lived at No 9 Pier Road. Dr Charles Ginestet persuaded his wife Jeanne that they should abandon their beautiful home and flee to France to start a new life. They would be leaving behind friends and family but also a nightmare of debts and legal proceeding.

    The Story of Jersey has won the Visit England ‘Best Told Story’ Accolade.
