A sparkling glass facade invites visitors to explore the preserved memory of Argentina's people at Museo Malvinas E Islas Del Atlantico Sur. Since its June 2014 opening, the museum has worked to promote the demand for Argentine sovereignty over the Malvinas and South Atlantic islands. A mix of multimedia exhibits pay tribute to the local typography, flora and fauna, and the Argentineans who gave their lives to defend the islands. The museum is well suited for visitors of any age, with a special interactive area for children.

  • The history of Argentina is full of symbolic episodes. Among these stands out the Falklands war in 1982. Is a very important historical and cultural reference. Visit the Museum of the Malvinas is a must if you enjoy these matters. Very well assembled, modern, well worth a visit.

  • A very dignified and educational experience. Well worth the visit if you wish to learn more about the conflict and history of the islands, especially if you are British like me. I was expecting more propaganda actually and whilst there is a clear slant against the British 'occupation', Argentina's claim to the islands, whilst very passionate, is made with clear historical references. I'm very glad I went.
  • I wanted to learn more about how Argentina lost a war where they outnumbered and outequipped the defender, logistically had the upper hand, and had the element of surprise. Full of propaganda, aimed at children, and presenting a very lobsided version of a very interesting part of history (and only in Spanish...)
  • Nice museum infrastructure and exposition but all in Spanish. No translation guide or English info during the exposition.
  • Excelente el museo y los guías. Great museum, great guides. You get to know a lot about history.
  • Excellent. Very interactive and didactic. Especially for teachers and students
