Jersey Heritage was founded in 1981. We are an independent organisation that receives an annual grant from the States of Jersey to support our running costs. Admission income from visitors and support from sponsors are also vital to keep us operating.
In Jersey we are responsible for the island’s major historic sites, award-winning museums and public archives. We hold collections of artefacts, works of art, documents, specimens and information relating to Jersey’s history, culture and environment. These collections define the island, hold the evidence for its historical development and act as the community’s memory.
