  • Pretty cool museum showing some of the history of industry here in island.
  • An interesting, and slightly random or even chaotic, collection of "things". Mostly objects from local industries, also common household objects dating about 50 years ago. Visit this place if you're passing by and if you have about half an hour to kill.
