For a complete look at the Islands' history, visit Museum Britannia House. Exhibits detail the region's history of sheep farming to the conflict of 1982. An abundance of artifacts preserved from the 19th century help paint a picture of what life on the islands was like during that period. You'll have the chance to explore the reproductions of an old community store, a Victorian kitchen, and a threadbare dentist's office. The museum also features a documentary, which will take you through the most recent conflict on the Islands in 1982 and give information on the region's part in both world wars. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Museum Britannia House by using our Stanley day trip planner.
