Interesting exhibitions

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!
