On display in the art gallery, you will find the work of Claude Cahun, recognized worldwide as one of the leading artists of the Surrealist movement. This museum cares for one of the largest collections of Cahun's work, which comprises photographs, original manuscripts, first editions, books and other personal material.

  • Incredible place with so much to see. The history of Jersey from the dawn of time. Well set out and lots of it. The Merchant's House is amazing. Pleasant and friendly staff. Make sure you have plenty of time.
  • Very interesting to gain a good background of Jersey. Could be organised a little better. Great changing facilities for little ones
