Hamptonne Country Life Museum

About Hamptonne

Hamptonne Country Life Museum presents six centuries of Jersey’s rural life set amongst a 15th century house and farm. The Museum is brought to life with characters from the Island’s past who teach traditional skills such as ironmongery and cider making, all in period dress.

During a visit to Hamptonne Country Life Museum you will have the chance to observe a traditional blacksmith at work and learn about bygone crafts and quirky traditions from the resident Goodwyf. As well as the vegetable and herb gardens, there is a beautiful orchard for you to explore and during the summer you will be able to watch the pigs and piglets playing in the traditional pigsty with outdoor yard and mud bath.
