This museum gives a very interesting take on the Icelandic 19th century history and is a good reminder that not only the Danish shaped the culture in Iceland, even though Iceland was under Danish rule for over 600 years.

Well organized and preserved artifacts and interpretation material. Very much worth a visit. The young lady at the gift store & reception was helpful when considering items to purchase.

It is a presentation of a well-to-do family which lived in the house at one time. The booklet provided good information.

Not sure if this attraction opens in the winter, but we still enjoyed the exterior and looking through the windows. I wouldn't make a special trip but would enjoy popping in if I were in the area.
