Jersey’s landscape and history have been shaped by the sea and this museum tells the story of the Island’s unique maritime environment and rich seafaring past. Set by the historic harbour of St Helier, the Maritime Museum is a uniquely interactive museum where you can see, hear and even smell the exhibits.
Learn about the tides or how to design and float a ship, immerse yourself in songs and stories of the sea, and investigate the Island's myths and legends or discover the fun of the seaside. Take a closer look at Jersey's link to seafaring and shipbuilding and the privateers and pirates who shaped the Island's maritime past and learn about navigation and the elements.
Also on site the Occupation Tapestry Gallery. The award-winning Occupation Tapestry which was woven by Islanders to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the liberation. The 13 richly colourful panels of the tapestry depict life and hardship under military rule and were created from the memories and stories of Islanders who experienced it first-hand
