    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Historic Dockyard Museum in the Falkland Islands opened its doors to the public in Sept 2014. The Museum (Under the Falkland Islands Museum & National Trust), is a registered charity in the Islands. The HDM has been a huge success but we are not done yet! We need to give the bigger items in our collection a home - a home they deserve.

    Nine generations of Social History are being looked after keenly at the Museum but the stories in themselves involve some intriguing and sizable artifacts - from ships rescued from treacherous seas to the Search and Rescue helicopter that saved the lives of many people in and around the Islands - to the 'Roadless' Landrover, only one of 9 ever built! We also have the F4 Phantom II - one of the first to arrive in the Islands after the conflict in 1982 together with a large collection of items left in the aftermath of the conflict in 1982; the bow of a 160 yr old American packet ship - the Charles Cooper; a fire engine, the Governors taxi - a red Austin London cab, a Lynx helicopter, a peat lorry, agricultural equipment and so, so much more!

    This big building will also incorporate a much needed storage facility - we have over 7,000 objects in our collection - a collection that continues to grow. Please help us to look after these treasures and preserve the heritage of the Falkland Islands for future generations.

    We have the land - we have the plans (a 20 x 60m building), we have the enthusiasm and we have the passion so all we need is the money! We can't do this without your help - we have a huge target but we also have huge hopes!

      1982 – 74 days that changed the lives of Islanders and those that fought for our freedom forever. The 1982 room in the Historic Dockyard Museum features a poignant and thought provoking video that features the memories of Islanders who were children during the conflict. What it doesn’t feature are the hundreds of items we have in our collection – items left here in the aftermath of 1982 – items that complete the story of 1982. Please help by donating here or by emailing director@falklands-museum.co.fk thank you

      Sir Ian Macfadyen visited the Islands late last year and was reunited with one of the Phantoms that arrived in the Islands at the end of the conflict in 1982 - a Phantom that stood as the Gate Guardian at Mount Pleasant Airpor for many years. Sir Ian Macfadyen was the first one to fly directly from the UK to the Islands via Ascencion Island. The cockpit of the Phantom (as seen below) is another of the items we have in our collection needing a home. Please help us build a home for this and the other larger items in our collection.
