Learn Maritime History | See Ocean Relics


History informs our present, and the arts give emotion and meaning to our lives. When these things are lost cultures can become “rudderless” and begin to drift. Without shared stories, cultural and communal connections eventually erode. Our goal at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum, is to preserve and share the wonders of our maritime heritage, highlight our complex interrelationships with the ecology of The Ocean, and showcase people’s creative expressions of everything related to the sea.
