The Weighbridge, St. Helier
This award-winning local museum mixes modern interactive displays with exhibits that tell the story of Jersey’s past.

Jersey War Tunnels
A thought provoking place where prisoners laboured in slave like conditions to build these tunnels.
Originally designed as a barracks and ammunition store and, as D-Day approached as a hospital for military casualties.
La Hougue Bie
La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. There is a medieval chapel atop and a command bunker from the Second World War as well as the world's largest collection of Celtic gold coins.
New North Quay, St. Helier
The Maritime Museum takes the sea and Jersey's central relationship with it as its theme. The museum has attracted widespread deserved acclaim for its emphasis on ‘learning through doing’ – visitors are not only allowed to touch the exhibits they are encouraged to. Children will enjoy the experience as much as adults.
