This is an interesting and well presented museum. It is easy to reach by catching the 92 bus from St Peter Port. There is also a Roman shipwreck to view. We were impressed with the way everything was displayed.

Fort Grey Shipwreck museum is in a wonderfully unusual Martello tower on Guernsey's west coast. It hosts Guernsey's shipwreck museum, which is fitting when you realise the toll the dangerous rocks off this coast have taken on shipping over the years. The museum is small...More

It is nice to see an historic site that has been so well preserved. If you have a naval interest, you will find the museum very interesting as it has much information on various wrecks throughout history. Apart from some steps, this is a safe...More

Nice and easy to visit as it's on the main bus route around the island. Lots of interesting facts and items on display, doesn't take long to get around but still highly recommended. A lot of the information is quite old, but as we haven't...More

The information about shipwrecks in this part of the world is well presented and makes for interesting reading. The building itself is interesting too. We used our Discovery pass to see this historic attraction.

Well worth a visit, it looks just like a cup and saucer. The museum is good and well laid out with excellent displays. There is a walkway out to the fort with a lot of steps to entrance. Tickets are purchased from Guernsey Pearl.

This is a much hyped place to visit, but we felt slightly disappointed afterwards. The Roman wreck was difficult to see, even with its special lighting. It is a part of a Roman ship and there was little information about it. I admit it is...More

We took a bus to Portelet and worked around the Pleinmont headland, via the Ferry Ring and Observation Tower, back to Portelet, then along Rocquaine Bay beach stopping at Fort Grey. Small museum, but well put together with plenty of interest. Well worth a visit...More
