The historic heart of Stanley
With special thanks to our Founding Partners and Sponsors
"The Historic Dockyard Museum is a well-designed, well-run, friendly place with an awful lot of history to learn about and enjoy.
I found the staff exceptionally helpful when I was researching my book on HMS Erebus and I felt that they were working to an ambitiously high standard.
If the new Gallery and Exhibition Hall is anything like as stimulating and attractive as the rest of the Museum it will, I’ve no doubt, be a great success and a valuable addition to understanding the rich history of the Islands.”
