“Maritime Fun”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

A fun filled hour. Buy the Jersey Pass from the Jersey Tourist Office in St Helier. See the Jersey Tapestry in the Museum ... Fantastic.

“A seafarers view of Jersey”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This was an interesting seafarers museum with plenty of history of Jersey. There were plenty of hands-on activities. We would have liked the descriptions of the boats in the marina to be a lot bigger as even at high tide they were too far away.

“Expensive for what it is”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Although enjoyed the tapestry, the rest was much as most seaside maritime museums which often are entry for a donation
