Friends of Falkland Islands Museum and Archives (FIMA) have donated £225,000 to the museum in recent months, to go towards the costs of building the new Lookout Gallery.
The largest ever and newest exhibit of the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust (FIMNT), “Etched in Memory,” opened at the Historic Dockyard Museum in the lead to Liberation Day.
Falkland Islands members of the elected Legislative Assembly have approved financial support for the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust to bring forward the build program for the Lookout Gallery and Exhibition Hall.
The Battle of the Falklands 1914 By Graham Pascoe reviewed by David Tatham - With the centenary of the 1914 naval battle coming up in December and commemorations planned for Falkland Islands capital, Stanley and London, Graham Pascoe’s concise account of the battles of Coronel and the Falkland Islands is well timed.
When the seat of government of the fledgling British colony in the Falkland Islands was moved from Port Louis to Stanley, in 1845, under the direction of Governor Moody, one of the first buildings to be constructed in what became known as the Government Dockyard, was a large store. This shingle clad, two story building, known as the Old Central Store still exists and is thought to be possibly the earliest large construction in the whole of the Southern Cone of South America.
