Get a window into the Iceland of the past at Skogar Museum. What started as a humble private collection more than half a century ago has developed into a true museum. See historical houses and workshops, a consecrated church, and a schoolhouse. The collection of artifacts includes authentic pieces of furniture, tools, home appliances, handicrafts, and, of course, fishing boats, which have always played an important role in Iceland's economy. The latest addition to the complex, the Museum of Transport, tells the story of communication technology development in Iceland. If you're visiting with a larger group, make a reservation in advance. Skogar Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Lovely museum about Icelandic history. There was a nice display of sod houses and what they looked like. There was also an interesting exhibit with cars and other things such as radio and telephones.
  • Skogafoss is beautiful, but your visit is not complete without stopping be the museum. An immense amount of history and tradition is compiled into their collection, including some of the first Icelandic translations of the bible. The open-air portion of the museum is a ton of fun, with several turf-roof buildings available to walk inside and explore.
