Jersey Heritage is an independent trust in Jersey which is responsible for the island's major historic sites, museums, and public archives. It holds collections of artefacts, works of art, documents, specimens, and information relating to Jersey's history, culture, and environment.
The Trust was formally registered in Jersey on 3 June 1983.
The Trust is financed by an annual grant from the States of Jersey, sponsorships, and venue admission fees.
The Jersey Museum and Art Gallery is located at Weighbridge Place, in St Helier.
In 2012, exhibits include some works by Claude Cahun, a French artist, and her lesser-known life partner Marcel Moore, as well as John Singleton Copley's large oil painting The Death of Major Peirson, which is on loan from the Tate, and John Everett Millais' portrait painting of Lillie Langtry, a Jersey-born singer and stage actress. Langtry held her wedding reception at The Royal Yacht Hotel, which is next-door to the museum.
The Jersey Archive, established in 1993, is located in a building on Clarence Road, in St Helier.
It has the responsibility of cataloging and storing historical documents and works of art, and to make archived items available to the public. This includes the initial examination of the Grouville Hoard, found in 2012.
