la Hougue Bie Museum
One of Europe's finest passage graves, set in beautiful surroundings, where you can learn about life in Jersey's neolithic community 6,000 years ago.

A medieval chapel sits on top of the prehistoric mound that dominates this tranquil and spiritual site. Hidden inside the mound is a large and well-preserved passage grave, considered one of Europe's finest dolmen examples. Enter the narrow passage that will take you to the heart of this ancient place of worship and imagine the lives of a community that gathered here over 6,000 years ago.

Ancient treasures are waiting to be discovered in the geology and archaeology museum on site, including coin hoards, axes, swords and spears.

Also on site, a command bunker built during the German Occupation houses a unique memorial to the memory of the slave-workers in the Channel Islands during the Second World War.

La Hougue Bie has a large picnic area where you can enjoy a day out amongst the beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

Address: la Hougue Bie Museum, La Route de la Hougue Bie, Grouville Jersey, JE2 7UA
