Step back in time and enjoy the fascinating historic collections unique to this island with a visit to The Folk and Costume Museum at Saumarez Park.
The Folk and Costume Museum is a flagship visitor attraction housed within a cluster of meticulously renovated traditional buildings set within the largest public park on the island, less than 15 minutes from the town centre of St Peter Port.
The museum gives you the opportunity to learn about the history of Guernsey’s people over the past 250 years. Displays at the museum tell the story of daily life for those at home, at school or working in one of the local industries.
From exhibits on the Guernsey farmhouse kitchen to the 20th century growing industry, the museum offers insights into all aspects of what life was like in Guernsey’s past.
Costume lovers will enjoy special exhibitions from our nationally acclaimed costume museum collection cared for by Gillian Lenfesty. Selections from any of the 8,000 pieces held by the museum are on display throughout every season.
