The Friends of the Maritime Museum
This voluntary society with charitable status set up in 1989 to help the Jersey Heritage Trust establish and maintain a Maritime Museum, to encourage its use by the public, and to provide a Learned Society role in maritime subjects.
The Société Jersiasie
The Société promotes the study of Jersey archaeology, history, natural history, the ancient language and the conservation of the environment and owns many of the items on display in Jersey’s museums. Many of the island’s prehistoric sites are owned by the Société and are free for visitors to enjoy. The Lord Coutanche Library and Photographic Archive at No7 Pier Road, next to Jersey Museum, are important resources for local and family history. There is also a local history bookshop here with many of the Société’s academic and popular publications and guides to the Island.
The National Trust for Jersey
The National Trust for Jersey preserves and safeguards sites of historic and natural interest. The Trust is the island’s largest private land owner caring for over 130 sites, including farms, cottages, watermills and military buildings. You can visit some of these sites including Moulin de Quétivel in St Peter’s Valley and 16 New Street in St Helier. The Trust manages some of the island’s best natural environment, including woodlands, countryside and coast. You can enjoy much of this by walking along the paths built at many Trust sites
