Fishing has always played a major role in Iceland's history. However, before the superbly equipped modern trawlers appeared, ordinary farmer-fishermen regularly risked their lives in order to feed their families. See the craft and tools they used through the ages in this beautifully appointed maritime museum. Special attraction: the Coast Guard Vessel Óðinn. Welcome aboard!
At the museum there are various temporary exhibitions every year, all have that in common that they are connected to fishing and the ocean. The main exhibitions rooms for these exhibitions are Hornsílið, Verbúðin and Betri stofan.
