  • I was sorely disappointed in this museum. Be aware that winter hours are 1PM - 4PM and honestly for $10, I expected an hour or two of interesting artifacts. It took us a total of maybe 15 minutes to w...  more »
  • The Akureyri Museum is located in the old part of town, so worth the little walk there already. It houses a total of three different exhibitions, two of which in my opinion for tourists are interesting. First, there's an exhibition of old maps of Iceland, from the 15th century. It's really exciting to see how early cartographers have imagined the country. Funny is these, populate the coasts. The second part is dedicated to the first Icelandic President. That sounded interesting at first, but unfortunately the exhibition focuses on her clothing style. So it is also the most exhibits dresses and hats. Only on the walls there are a few information boards to work a video film, where it also go to their clothing, also. It is a pity when a politicians is reduced to her look. The third part deals with life in Akureyri in past centuries. There are many exhibits from the professional life of fishermen, as well as the private lives of. This part is well worth seeing again. Some souvenirs are sold at the entrance. Staff is very friendly and happy to answer questions.

  • Quite small considering the entry price. The exposition is nice though, with almost everything both in Islandic and English
  • Probably the smallest Museum in the world. Exhibits uniteressant, dried fish, machines from the 1950s, old maps, old clothes. This was quite disappointing. Walking distance from the port of half an hour. Entrance fee is too high.
