Maritime Museum and Occupation Tapestry Gallery

New North Quay, St Helier, JE2

Discover all about Jersey's maritime past in this uniquely interactive museum where you can see, touch, hear and even smell the exhibits! Set by the historic harbour of St. Helier, the Maritime Museum is all about seafaring, navigation and the elements, told through the stories of Jersey people. Through interactive exhibits you can feel the force of a gale, understand the tides and learn how to design and float a ship.

The museum also includes the Occupation Tapestry Gallery showing a display of 13 tapestries created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Liberation of Jersey. Enthusiasm for the project was such that it became the biggest community project ever to take place on the island and people from all parishes took part in the production of the Tapestry.
