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.

Great place to visit a hobbit-like environment exhibiting early Icelandic life. Very well done museum and exhibits. Our second visit. more »
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.
