This is one of the most charming, original and informative museums I've ever visited. They really bring to life the way people used to live. There's a great sense of individual character to it - the place feels like it was assembled by a person not a committee.

Easy to miss, but worth a visit to get some sense of how people lived in Iceland a hundred plus years ago.

The entire top floor of the Library is the culture museum. There are lots of English descriptions. Numerous small alcove rooms with specialty displays

Good variety of homemade items crammed into a small space by the harbor; pleasant service. Much of the stuff can be seen elsewhere so it was nice to see it all together.

No wonder their display on Icelandic cultural life has won an award for the best in Iceland. It had some really interesting artefacts especially the polar bear and everything was displayed perfectly with just the right balance of text to objects.
