There's more to discover at Jersey Museum & Art Gallery (admission prices apply).

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.
