I have been to many museums around the world and to me, it is expected for a country’s museum to be nationalistic. However, this museum tops the global ranking in terms of biased portrayal of history to the extent of being incredible. The theory that...More

Useful for a UK citizen to read the story of the 1982 war from the other point of view. Apart from the thriller-drama music over the short sequence of the active fighting (which continues to glorify war as something to enjoy), both the video and...More

High end quality with free admission. If you only have time to check out only one museum while staying in BA, please visit this one. I spent more the 3 hours there. Such an enriching experience.

This museum covers both the historic conflict between Argentina and the UK (without any sign of propaganda) as well as the natural characteristics of the Islas Malvinas/Falkland Islands. Do not spend too much time in it, though. Free wifi throughout.

It has the clear purpose of paying tribute to the Argentinians who gave their lives in defense of the Islands, but also offer visitors information on malvinas habitat. It has a room, where kids can participate in educational play experiences, through tablets and interactive displays....More
