Located on Ross Road, in Stanley, the Historic Dockyard Museum contains many exhibits of social and maritime interest and is a “must-see” for all visitors. Life in the past is exemplified though farming stories, items for entertainment and relaxation, recreations of shops, homes and buildings including a wash-house and old smithy. Maritime exhibits include models, seafaring tales, artefacts and relics from ships stranded in the Islands. Natural history is also on display with the world’s oldest remains of the Warrah, a fox-like animal now extinct, and Falklands’ birds brought to life through taxidermy. 

A shop in the museum offers a variety of souvenirs including local interest books, prints and locally crafted items, branded clothing and woollen gifts, Historic Dockyard Museum branded local pottery, replica scrimshaw and cold-cast bronze figures including Falklands’ wildlife.
