Skóbúðin er staðsett í Hafnarstræti 5. Á safninu vinnum við með sögur, minningar, tilfinningar og tengsl. Við setjum upp sýningar sem eru byggðar á persónulegum heimildum frá íbúum sem búa eða hafa búið á svæðinu. Við reynum að finna augnablikin sem lýsa upplifunum og gefa innsýn. Það sem gerist í hversdeginum er oft mjög lýsandi fyrir mannlífið, en hann er líka svo heillandi því hann er einmitt eitthvað sem við virðumst tengja við, sama hvaðan við erum.

The old shoe-shop, known to locals as Skóbúðin is a unique spot in the center of Ísafjörður.

We have a collection of local stories, memory fragments, sound installations and visuals that give insight to the everyday life of people in the area of the Westfjords of Iceland.

We also have a carefully selected souvenir and gift shop where you can find hand-crafted items all made by local artists and designers.

  • A little museum that showcases the lives of the Icelandic people. Very creative and interesting, but only visit if you have an hour to kill. 700 ISK for admission when we visited in July 2018.
  • Excellent museum of everyday life in this part of the world. Interesting unusual exhibits plus a series of short films about life in Iceland.
