Kooky
Aug 2021
We received such a warm welcome from the curator her that we felt like we were the first visitors for days (I hope we weren’t). Wonderfully kooky exhibition about the local giant Johan, with lots of his oversized everyday objects. Good WC, no café (go visit Grill 66 round the corner) but fantastic staff. Oh it’s also located by the beautiful village green with duck pond!

Good, amusingly hard to find
Sep 2019
The museum is not mentioned in google maps and any gps coordinations or address mentioned lead to very wrong place. But when we just watched around we saw the sign and the bench and figured it must be there. From September it’s winter time and only open on Saturdays or you have to call ahead and you get a “private tour”. The house is lovely, there is a lot more than just about the tall man. It’s a “walk through” museum not really interactive so we spent max 30-45 minutes there. It costs 800isk, children under 18 free. Good for rainy day.

Visit to Dalvik
Jul 2016 • Family
A very interesting little museum. Well worth visiting. We took our children when they were young. They were amazed by Jon the giant especially my eldest son. He was 6 at the time. The staff are very helpful and the displays are well presented.

Quirky, Fun Small-Town Museum
Jul 2016 • Family
Our family had some time to kill before our whale watching trip,so we popped into this great museum. The staff was very friendly, following us around a bit to give English explanations (much of the signage was only in Icelandic) and the collection is just a bunch or real-world items from the past (my kids were enthralled by the record player!) and 'famous' people who have a connection to Dalvik. My favorite exhibit was about the local man who stood over 8 feet tall and was the world's tallest man for a while.

Our favourite thing in Dalvik!
Jun 2016 • Friends
We went to Dalvik twice and the museum visit was our favourite.

It is a lovingly kept place in an historic house and with English information on most displays.

The lady manning the desk was knowledgeable and happy to provide further information. We were even lucky in that the director came and told us a bit about the small special exhibition they had on.

I reckon there is something for everyone, from daily life, farming, fishing and hunting to crafts and peoples' education in past times.
This is complemented by a room about the one-time tallest man in the world, who came from the area. We found not an easy topic, which was is sensitively presented.
To round it of, there is a taxidermy display of local birds and even a Greenlandic icebear.

We certainly had an excellent time and spent much longer than we thought we would.

Unexpected highlight
May 2016 • Couples
This museum has a lot to offer. Going from old implements, to all kinds of animals, to a mighty exhibition of the tallest man who lived and so on. The museum host Iris is also a very welcoming person with a lot to share.
Certainly worth the visit!

The Greatist Little Sardine Factory in Iceland
Jul 2015 • Couples
A surprising treat. Lots of memorabilia in separate original building museums. The photos of the sardine factories were amazing and educational. You got a sense of how people lived in this factory town, and the disposable income this new business brought. Previously people bartered for everything.
