tapestry - pfft! why bother? why - because it tells the story about Jerseys occupation in WW2 Brilliantly! really interesting with films & accounts frm the time. The Maritime museum in some parts is like an art gallery, other parts interesting & informative- good for children & adults alike- well worth the money

Visited during half term and it was great value for money. The kids dressed up as pirates & got to do loads of arts & crafts that were pirate related. They watched a show & got to fight like pirates, walked the plank & so much more. Fantastic time had by all.

Great attraction. Visited with family who were over on holiday. Parking near by but parked at the waterfront and enjoyed a walk around the harbour

there's a lot to see, spread over a bigger area than is apparent - plenty of hands on exhibits for children to get involved with

This is an excellent hands on attraction, ideal for kids (and adults) on a rainy day or even on a dull say. Highly recommended.

Although it's tricky to find a parking place, you simply must visit. Adults and children will find much to learn, and enjoy.

Great to visit for adult visiters & parents with children. Its a very interactive museum which is great if you want to push buttons & explore. Make sure you make time to visit the Occupation Tapestry. Great place to visit if the weather isn't so good, & you can visit this & the Jersey Museum in the same day.
