Travel back to a simpler time at the National Trust of Guernsey's Folk and Costume Museum. The story of Guernsey's people is set out using items from the past 250 years in displays showing how they learned, worked and played. 

The National Trust of Guernsey Costume Collection showcases garments and accessories drawn from the Island's largest collection of clothing and textiles, with each display annually curated and presented.  

First floor exhibitions for 2023 feature the elegance of the Georgian period with the ground floor exhibition remaining for a second-year showcase of handbags, vintage luggage and travel accessories. The Museum Shop is very popular with visitors and Islanders alike. 

Eight art exhibitions will take place between April and October in the Art at The Park gallery. 

Less than a 15 minute drive from the town centre of St Peter Port and easily accessible by bus, the Museum is access-friendly for all visitors.
