This musseum can be easily added to a traveler's itinerary if the itinerary includes a visit to Skogar waterfall as it is pracatically next door. The collection has been lovingly collected by one person. It is displayed very nicely. The contents really share what life...More

We went here as a part of a day tour. Wr. only had 45 minutes to spend here, but I think we could have spend 3 hours or so. You can see the love with which the collection was assembled.

This "museum" is a testament to the ability of one man to collect as much random stuff as possible, organize it a little bit, and call it a museum. The main reason I was glad for the stop was that it was raining hard all...More

I am deeply sorry that the Museum was not to your liking, however reading your review I hardly believe that you even visited the open air museum with 19th century Icelandic turf homesteads or even the Folk Museum with artefacts dating back to Viking age...More

We stopped here as part of our Gray Line tour. This collection belongs to one person who just has a love of collecting items used in this area of Iceland. There is so much inside to look at, everything from tools to period dress costumes...More

Entry is 1900 ISK per adult, and you can pay by card anywhere in Iceland. ;) People don't tend to carry cash.

Bonjour, Non, pour toutes les chutes d'eau à l'extérieur, vous ne devez pas réserver à l'avance. Il faut surtout assurer la réservation des hôtels. Bien à vous !

La musée de plein air n'est pas payant. Vous pouvez entrer dans les petites maisons. Il ne faut pas réserver. C'est à seulement une minute de la grande cascade. Bon séjour!
