There’s lots more to discover (admission prices apply) upstairs, including our exhibition: Bouan Appétit!, which explores Jersey’s rich heritage of fishing, farming and food. Admire pieces of art as you wander round the museum, including a portrait of Lillie Langtry by Millais.
Step inside the beautifully restored, gas-lit Victorian House and learn the story of a Victorian family in crisis as Dr Charles Ginestet abandons their beautiful home and flees to France to start a new life. On the ground floor of the Victorian House, visit Trade Roots, a powerful exhibition that examines the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. Our gallery space on the first floor is currently closed.
