Dampfmaschinen, Motoren und Technik aus vergangenen Zeiten in einem fesselnden Museum. Diese faszinierende Sammlung bietet für jedes Interesse etwas – und noch viel mehr.
This fascinating Museum is managed by a Trust which was established by its founder, the late Don Pallot, with the object of promoting the permanent preservation of the Island's mechanical heritage. Don spent his early days as a trainee engineer with the old Jersey Railway. Later on, working as an agricultural and contracting engineer, he began collecting what he could of our mechanical heritage. There is no doubt that but for his steady interest, maintained over many years, much that is on view today would have been lost forever.
So, whatever the weather, we invite you to take a step back in time and enjoy at your leisure the vast and varied collection of steam locos and engines, vintage, commercial, military and classic vehicles, bicycles and toys, tractors, barn engines, agricultural implements and other machinery, nostalgic photographs including the Jersey railways, Jersey Road Races and transport history, paraffin lamps and domestic items, a variety of organs, including a pipe church and Compton theatre organ and numerous items of memorabilia all housed within the absorbing Museum which has seating if you want a little rest. A real walk down memory lane with something to interest all ages.
Routes 25 (outwards) and 27 (inwards) plus a short walk.
Drive north from St Helier along the A9, La Grande Route de St Jean. Free parking on site.
