Jersey Maritime Museum and Occupation Tapestry

The Jersey Maritime Museum teaches visitors about that history and about seafaring through a series of interactive displays. This makes it a great family activity. Located in the historic St Helier harbour, the Maritime Museum's most popular activities include: a collection of items from HMS Havick, wrecked in a storm in St Aubin's bay in 1800; watching boat restorers at work; various model boats (including one of HMS Jersey); and interactive galleries that recreate the force of a gale and explain how to build ships.

As a small island in the English channel, Jersey has a varied maritime history.
The museum also houses the 72 foot long, 3 foot high Occupation Tapestry. Made by the people of Jersey over seven years, the Tapestry contains 12 panels each depicting a different event from Jersey’s war history. It comprises a remarkable 7.5 million stitches, and was presented to the public on the 50th anniversary of Jersey’s liberation.
