  • The 2013 exhibition was Alderney Through Art
  • The 2012 exhibition was HMS Affray
  • The topical 2011 exhibition on "The Alderney Stones Project" by world renowned sculpture artist Andy Goldsworthy. The exhibition coincided with the installation of 11 sculptures by Goldsworthy on Alderney which are still in situ. This exhibition was financed by the Guernsey Arts Council.
  • The 2010 "Sophia Guille Sketches" exhibition displayed over twenty of the exquisite sketches of Alderney by Sophia Guille dating to 1850 with subject matters ranging from picnics on the cliffs to the famed parish church of St Anne's.
  • The 2009 popular "Victorian Fortifications of Alderney" displayed enlarged copies of the beautifully hand drawn coloured drawings of the Victorian fortifications dating to 1850. This exhibition proved so popular that part of it is now included in the permanent display in the main gallery.
