  • A wonderful collection of tools from early industry. If you are a fan of industrial design you will enjoy it. Lots of food packaging design collections, old shoe making stuff, furniture, etc. A nice way to spend an hour.
  • Great museum highlighting Akureyri's diverse industrial history. The museum is absolutely full of interesting objects, photos, machinery and other items with plenty of information in English. The staff are more than willing to answer any questions. I highly recommend this cool museum.
  • Very interesting place. Lots of history and exhibits. Reading is a must! Great place.
  • Fantastic place. Here is every thing you wanna see in industry. And a lot of old stuff youve seen before in time. Go go go.
  • Great history lessons right there.
