We are Jersey Heritage and we’re here to share our island’s fascinating stories and places. We’re here to care for our unique history. We’re here to help you find your place in the story. And we’re here to make sure that these stories keep getting told.
We hold collections of artefacts, works of art, documents, specimens and information relating to Jersey's history, culture and environment. These collections define the island, hold the evidence for its historical development and act as the community's memory.
We look after the following visitor sites; Jersey Museum, Maritime Museum, Mont Orgueil Castle, Elizabeth Castle, La Hougue Bie and Hamptonne. We also manage Jersey Archive.
We are open all year round.

This December Jersey Youth Performing Arts (JYPA) bring to life some of Jersey’s most enduring ghost stories, told by candlelight at Mont Orgueil Castle. Telling ghost stories during winter is a hallowed tradition, a folk custom that stretches back centuries, when families would while away the dark nights with tails of spooks and monsters.

In 2012, the world's largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.
