Jersey Explorer Children's Museum

This museum offers an exciting way for young learners to explore history, culture, and science on their own! Learn about famous disasters and uncover treasures from Russia and Morocco at the Exploration Station, or travel back in time with a re-enactment of the civil rights movement in 1963 Birmingham. Journey across a distant galaxy, or explore the Tomb of the Egyptian King and uncover ancient mysteries. When they finish exploring, learners can see a puppet show, a science demonstration, or learn about another chapter of history with the help of the museum's photo collection from Life, Look, and other magazines.
