Get an in-depth look into the local heritage at Falkland Islands Museum, which exhibits the early history, way of life, and natural environment of the islands. Inside this small museum, set by the water's edge, you'll find everything from specimens of native birds to ship bells and maps, plus peculiarities such as a mug with a moustache protector. Keep your eye out for a 15-minute video of the Argentinian invasion and subsequent 1982 war. The powerful video is narrated by children who witnessed the conflict.

  • The Falklands are rightfully British territory. Argentina lost the war after invading the Falklands and now they try to cry about it because their dictator brainwashed them into thinking it’s theirs. It’s not.
  • Very nice place small but full of interesting things to see a must see place when visiting Falklands there's a nice shop with gifts as well
  • Small but extraordinarily good museum. Must visit (and after 1 July) you pay the fee in your departure fee (so entry to the Museum is free). Quite a good little museum shop also.
  • I think they should read this the Brits who live on the islands. The 4 of February of 1540 a Spanish boat captained by Alonso de Camargo arrived at the Malvinas islands and remained in the archipelago until 3 of December of the same year. The British government insisted until well into the twentieth century that John Davis discovered the islands in 1592 and grounded in that his rights of sovereignty. However, modern British government and historians recognize that John Davis did not discover the islands. In 1592, date of the supposed discovery of John Davis, the islands already appeared in numerous Spanish maps.
  • I find it hilarious that the British claim that the Malvinas are theirs. These islands are right off the coast of Argentina, and yet, they insist on fighting to the death for nothing but rocks filled with sheep. Stop the bickering and give it back to the rightful owners- Argentina! Las Malvinas son Argentina!
