Description

Set in stables and other outbuildings of an old country house in Guernsey's largest park, the Folk and Costume Museum depicts life as it used to be in the Island around 100 years ago. Displays include domestic life, farming, fishing and seafaring, trades, the tomato industry and transport. The recently much enlarged museum also has several displays on Guernsey costume and a magnificent fully-furnished scale model of a Victorian town house. In the summer months (May - August), the museum has a programme of small-scale local craft demonstrations and explanations on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons.
