Falkland Islands Museum, Stanley

4.2
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. Falkland Islands Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Stanley Edition.

  • Whaling history and Military history artifacts incredible. Ship models from different periods, photographs of historical people, and antiques from early days abound. I could have spent much more time there.
  • A must on a visit to the Falkland's, if you are visiting from a cruise ship admission is free on presentation of your cruise card. Visitors from any where in the world (a part from the UK) will be in no doubt after a visit to the museum that the islanders do NOT want to be part of Argentina. Plus it was the British forces (not Americans). Only a few minutes walk from the harbour, theres toilets & a tourist shop on site.
