A friends and family event for those wanting to share and learn more about the daily lives Islanders over the last 250 years. We are particularly interested to meet people who can share memories of the museum; perhaps you worked as a volunteer, maybe you visited as a child. Please come along with your stories and especially, any photographs. You are our living history and what you could share may be incredibly valuable to us.

This special open day will include dressing-up activities, quiz trails, a selection of presentations and hands-on sessions, highlighting different industries from Guernsey’s past. Our permanent attractions include some outstanding exhibitions and our ever-popular museum shop, selling traditional sweets, gifts and toys. As a special attraction, there will also be a selection of local stalls on the courtyard. Historic costume-lovers will delight in three sparkling exhibitions, all new for 2018 and reflecting this celebratory year for both the museum and the forthcoming British royal wedding events.
