  • A good museum spread over several 'houses' Very informative on the islands history. I particularly liked the one on the radios and telecommunications.  more »
  • If it's history of the region you are interested in, this is the place. Our favorite section was that which dealt with the war. Not to be missed.  more »

  • Nice quaint little museum. A lot about how the country transitioned over the centuries. Not a lot about the '82 war from soldiers but there is a lot from the perspective of the local people, a lot where children at the time, which was particularly moving. Well worth the fiver from that point of view alone.
  • What a great place. Thank you, Curators and citizens of Falklands!
