    You can find here i very compact form. The various topics are certainly different. But, you get a lot of information.

    We spent the day going into several local museums, this one wasn't quite what we were expecting but it was well done and a good way to spend a rainy day.  more »

    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.

Where to stay in Akureyri

For easy access to Akureyri's most popular attractions, restaurants, and stores, consider staying in the lively waterfront area. This area features a number of hotels and hostels within walking distance of the city's museums, galleries, and sites. Cost-conscious visitors should explore one of the more inland guesthouses. Some double as student housing but are generally not raucous. Vacation apartments provide a good base for those planning a longer stay in the northerly metropolis and many are centrally located. To make the most of the scenic countryside surrounding the city, opt for a campsite or cottage in the outskirts.
