The Maritime Museum has so much to see, do and experience that you need to allow yourself plenty of time – especially if you have children with you. Since its grand opening in July 1997, this hands-on attraction has delighted visitors, both young and old and has received a great deal of media acclaim. In the elements section you can learn, through specifically commissioned interactive exhibits, about the tides, the winds and the waves; in the boats section you can discover the basic principles of boat design and propulsion, while in the people section there is the human story of Jersey’s maritime heritage for you to see, hear, touch and even smell.
