Museum Britannia House, Stanley

#8 of 14 in Things to do in Stanley
For a complete look at the Islands' history, visit Museum Britannia House. Exhibits detail the region's history of sheep farming to the conflict of 1982. An abundance of artifacts preserved from the 19th century help paint a picture of what life on the islands was like during that period. You'll have the chance to explore the reproductions of an old community store, a Victorian kitchen, and a threadbare dentist's office. The museum also features a documentary, which will take you through the most recent conflict on the Islands in 1982 and give information on the region's part in both world wars.

    very interesting Museum of the historical, architectural and cultural point of view. The first houses of pioneers have been restored to show the way of life and the activities of the era. You can walk from the port. By the way you can visit the Anglican Church, see the houses from the main street that leads to the Museum. Or stop for a tea time in a café. It is also interesting to visit the local supermarket to see what they are importing (a lot of European products) and what they produce (e.g. Lamb meat.)
