The national museum of the Falklands! Celebrating the cultural heritage of the Falkland Islands, this large and modern museum complex is the one Stanley attraction that you will not want to miss. With five themed galleries (social, maritime and natural history, the 1982 war, Gateway to Antarctica) and several small outbuildings which includes the Smithy & Gearshed, the complex also features a speciality coffee and chocolate shop. All less than 5 minutes easy walk from the Jetty Visitors Centre/landing stage.

Miss this at your peril, very interesting to see how the children of the islands viewed the invasion in 1982 of the Argentines!
