The Aquarium and Natural History Museum in the town of Heimaey has an above-average collection of stuffed birds and around a dozen tanks of local fishes. Labels in English are included for most exhibits and the staff are very knowledgeable resources, too. The Museum also has a small gift shop. What made our visit here so special was meeting a...
