The Maritime Museum and Occupation Tapestry Gallery are situated in converted Edwardian warehouses on the New North Quay of St Helier Harbour. The museum takes as its theme the sea and our relationship with it. It reflects the experience of Islanders and Jersey's maritime heritage, both contemporary and historic. The Occupation Tapestry was made by the People of Jersey to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Liberation and is possibly the greatest community project undertaken in Jersey. The Tapestry consists of 12 panels - one made by each parish - and tells the story of the German Occupation in the Second World War. There audio guides available as well as an audio-visual presentation.
