Isle of Man Museums

The Story has just begun. The past will not be forgotten and must tell its tale. See, hear and know what the Isle of Man is all about.

A wealth of information can be found in the Museums about the Isle of Man. Experience Grove House, the Victorian home frozen in time. Learn about the connection the island has with the sea at the Nautical Museum. Enjoy a look at the history of steam travel in the Railway Museum. The National Gallery holds paintings depicting scenes and people associated with the Isle of Man. This Gallery is connected to the Manx Museum, which is the Isle of Man's National Museum holding much of the island's past within its walls. If you are a motorcycle fan, then a visit to the Motorcycle Museum with its large bike collection is a must. The Tynwald Museum is small, but marks the history of Tynwald Hill and the long traditions held there.
