TripAdvisor Reviews

Strongly recommended

Great place to visit a hobbit-like environment exhibiting early Icelandic life. Very well done museum and exhibits.

Our second visit.

Excellent presentation

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.
