This is a must do it is an amazing place you also have the house attached so you can get the store off the people that lived there. It has been restored to all its glory. Loved it.

Well laid out and easy to navigate. Good film to introduce Jersey and interesting 'old house'. Didn't enjoy the modern displays where several soundtracks clashed and we gave up.

Interesting place to visit, the Merchant House was very good. History of Jersey as you would expect. The Bergerac years and 1980 section had us reminiscing.
