Borgarnes Museum, Borgarnes

4.8
Borgarnes Museum helps you understand Iceland through great exhibits. One is dedicated to Iceland's history in the 20th century. Photos narrate the story in a visual way that's easy to relate to and doesn't require the knowledge of the local language. Another exhibit displays the birds of Iceland in a setting created by artist Snorri Freyr. It's a sight to see, and could be especially interesting for kids. See the website for further details.
