We were in Iceland for the second time, as hoping to see aurora borealis. So, whilst cold weather, often raining or snowing, we needed to find activities for the daytime. This fitted the bill perfectly and taught us a lot about Icelandic history. It cost 4000 ISK for 2 of us.

Tools, instruments, artefacts used in fishing and farming. This is an amazing museum with a knowledgeable staff that turns this into a living example of what occurred here since the days of the Viking. This should not be missed.

Great place to visit. I went though all the buildings that were open. The displays in the museum were excellent. Well worth a couple of hours. The staff there was very friendly and helpful.
