  • We were only able to see some of the museum since we arrived late in the day. However, what we saw was detailed, interesting and really amazing. It is well worth a visit.
  • Three multi-floored buildings details the herring era in Iceland. Everything from fishing the herring, processing them, to it’s by-products. Additionally it’s history with famous people are included. The lifestyle and work of those involved whether directly or indirectly. Lastly, it’s use in the two world wars and the current state of the fishing industry of Iceland. There is a small section on a fisherman who sailed the seven seas preaching the gospel too.
