A privately owned museum houses two memorable collections, surprisingly bigger than it looks, showcasing Sark’s heritage and also the Occupation during World War II. It is situated on the East side of the island, past the HSBC bank.
As you reach the top of the harbour hill, turn right at the crossroads by the HSBC bank. The Sark Museum is on the left, just before the telephone exchange. The natural stone building, included in the book ‘Channel Island Houses’ has a well in the nook, and was the original telephone exchange. It now houses two distinct collections: World War II Occupation memorabilia and rarely-seen Guernsey resistance newsletters, plus an absorbing heritage collection, including photos of Sark’s traditional way of life and rural life implements, up to a modern-day attempted take-over of Sark.
The museum is open for the season from 2pm -4.30pm daily, closing Friday and Saturday at 5.30pm (on a voluntary best-effort basis), and occasionally opens earlier for large groups and dreary weather. Look for the Sark Museum sign with “will return” clock at the Collenette crossroads just past the carriages, and also posted at the museum entrance. To arrange a visit outside these hours, or if it happens to be closed, please contact Sark Visitor centre on 01481 832345, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
