  • With the history surrounding Falklands from 1982 this forms a central area of homage and remembrance  more »
  • Arrived in the Falklands and you discover a large family proud of its origins and determined to preserve its islands as well as the flora and fauna that make his wealth. But to understand their history, this museum is a must. Very complete, you will find the history of its inhabitants, the history of the war with Argentina, the adventures of their advance in Antarctica, and an entire floor on wildlife and maritime stories. Count well 2 hours if for the Museum. Then you take a walk to the annexes to discover the beginnings of the communication on the island, printing, the laundry, the life of Marshal ferrand and the centrality of the horses among the settlers. £ 5 entry, it is little in light of what you discover. Good visit :)

  • I think that the Argentine people are indoctrinated from an early age on untrue history about the Falklands islands. The people that live there and have always lived there are from British descent and they should be allowed to live in there own country in peace.
  • Kelper idiot, they still do not realize that their country hates them, so they sent them more than 10.000 km from England
  • its funny that Argentinians seriously believe that the Falkland islands are theirs. I find it amusing
  • Great place
