This excellent facility costs £5 and is run by the Guernsey national trust. Takes about 1 hour to get around the excellent exhibits. Thoroughly enjoyed this visit

A very interesting museum about the history of Guernsey. The 1950s and Victorian costumes are especially worth a look. The museum is free for all national trust members and is easily accessed on foot or bus.

Interesting museum set in beautiful grounds. Obviously very popular with the locals with a group of young mums and toddlers running and doing yoga in the park.

The museum and park exceeded our expectations. We visited on a Saturday in July - it was very quiet. The exhibits in the museum are better than most small museums - children and adults should enjoy it. There is s cafe in the park.
