    We unfortunately arrived just as one of several tour groups from the cruise ships was there. The group filled the houses so much I became claustrophobic! However, during a lull in visitors, we were able to get a good look around and found it interesting. One of the docents took time to answer our questions and provide more information as well as recommendations for other museums in Akureyri. Nice that the entry price includes annual entry to this museum and several others in town. Also, appreciated free tea after the visit as it was a rainy day.

    Stopped in here after visiting the history museum nearby. Interesting to see what a home was like back in the 1800's in Iceland and made me interested in the stories of the author. Do wish it had a docent to tell you more.

    This museum is amazing. There is so much history there. Machines and stuff from old times. It took me 40 years back in time when, as a 12 year old, I was working in factory with my father making paint in 1000 liter pots and put it in plastic boxes, i liter, 3 l, 5 l, 10 l, . fantastic memories. How much has the technology changed ... 40 years back and it is amazing how much has changed. very very nice to see this one.
