There is quite a lot that you can touch, at the Alderney Museum, so long as nobody is looking. My toddler touched his first taxidermied animal! It was a blonde hedgehog. At first I thought that it was a toilet brush or a little loofah that somebody had left lying around, and shrieked when my toddler grabbed it with his pudgy little grabbity handsies! Agh! He loved its!
How wonderful to be such a small island with so much history, and most of it is neatly held in the museum. There are hard parts of history that Alderney has endured. It is not easy to hold the weight of each and every artefact from the Nazi Occupation, the collection is heavy on the heart be warned.
