Guernsey Museum houses permanent exhibitions showing the Archaeology of Guernsey, Treasures from around the world held in their collection and the Folklore of Guernsey with an Art Gallery showing 200 works of art displayed ingeniously using pull-out drawers to make the best use of a small space. These are running alongside temporary exhibitions that change throughout the year and the Discovery Room for families housing a Cabinet of Curiosities, old-fashioned games to play and the very popular Timewarp that changes each year.
There is also a public art space run by the Arts Commission which shows a rolling programme of local art displays, a café and a gift shop, all housed within the restored Victorian Candie Gardens where you can enjoy fantastic views over the harbour and see the statues of Victor Hugo & Queen Victoria.
