The Sark Museum is an authentic experience of Sark’s wide history spanning several centuries, with two not-to-be-missed museums in one!
The museum houses an eclectic mix of Sark cultural and heritage memorabilia, from historic photos of rural Sark and its buildings of interest, to details of the attempted takeover of the island in 1990(!) The museum also boasts a popular and important collection of World War II memorabilia, capturing the island’s unique and challenging war experience as shared by the islanders, British and German people at this time. Visitors often comment on the personal nature and human aspect of the collection in particular. Rare re-prints of local wartime resistance newsletters are also available to read, in addition to many interesting books about Sark’s unique wartime history being available to purchase.
To find us, turn right at the Harbour Hill crossroads. The museum is then located on your left after a short 5 minute walk.
The museum operates on a voluntary best-effort basis. Our opening times for the season are from 2-4.30pm, closing Fri & Sat at 5:30 pm*.
*Occasionally we will open earlier for large groups and dreary weather. Look for the Sark Museum sign with “Will Return” time at the Collinette crossroads just past the horse and cart carriages. This is also posted at the museum entrance. If the museum is closed please contact Sark Tourism to see if a visit can be arranged.
