Create an itinerary including Skogar Museum
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.

  • This is a collection of many museums (transport museum, open air museum, Icelandic life museum). There were many explanations and signs throughout the museum in English, Icelandic, French, and German. We visited on a rainy day. We had a lot of fun going through everything and it took us around 3 hrs, but you can easily finish the museum in less time.
  • Super cool little museum! The transportation building was very interesting and it was nice to walk around outside to all of the neat houses. Decent price to get in as wel
