  • Do not hesitate to stop because the Museum is very interesting and very complete (local, maritime life + movie on the sheep). Small restaurant and very friendly service by a young history student. A wreck of plane outside and 2 boats. Very nice!

  • This is a great museum with a lot of interesting objects, as an Icelander i saw a lot of interesting things, both that I can relate to and things I’ve only heard about. The only thing I would like to see is more information about how the different things were used, perhaps some interesting videos. There is also a very interesting section about a wild flock of sheep that lived freely in the mountains for over a decade.
  • When here and have 30 to 45 min to spend (was raining when we visited) go and haver a look inside. Thoug small, the museum is made with love and care, gives you a good impression about history and background of this country!
