Jersey Museum Fun Week
So many images to be taken on the way
Gateway to Fun Week
In the Edwardian studio
Jemima Houze shows interest in the latest camera (of its time)
Looked on by her mother, Linda
No not Dr Who but the Edwardian Photographer himself
The sitter has to keep still; as this shot was exposed for 8 seconds
Gems to be found in quite corners

So what's to be discovered at the Museum? A few moments of Peace?
Quiet contemplation of hidden treasures? Or...

Behind the scenes at Jersey Museum and the Maritime Museum is a hive of activity as we begin building the new exhibitions for 2011.
At Jersey Museum the Marilyn Monroe collection of David Gainsborough Roberts has been taken to the American Museum in Bath to help celebrate its 50th anniversary. Our curators, conservators and technicians are now preparing the gallery for the new exhibition Hidden Treasures, Modern Masters to be launched in March. It will feature twentieth century art belonging to Islanders, including drawings by Degas, Matisse, Miro and Picasso, paintings by Hockney and Lichtenstein and a bronze sculpture maquette by Henry Moore.
In the John de Veulle Gallery the new social history show All our Yesterday’s is taking shape. Based on items donated by Islanders in collecting project last year, the exhibition will tell the story of changing fads and fashions in Jersey in the 1950s to the 1980s.
