  • Awesome little museum with knowledgeable staff. Neat to look around and taste the fermented shark. It wasn't as bad as you would think! Stop in and spend some time looking around!
  • The museum was very nice and gives a good insight to general items used through Icelandic history, but there is no general theme to the items. The presentation on Greenland sharks was very good and we got to see two actual sharks. Also, the tour around the place and tasting was quite nice.
  • This was a surprisingly interesting stop. The young lady who conducted our tour grew up in the family who runs the operation and was a terrific docent. THEY ALSO receive donation of a lot of artifacts outside of the realm of sharks that are pretty interesting.
  • The girl doing the tour is so nice!!! Nice experience and the shark was actually not bad!
  • So seeing how is made did not improved the taste but the bread a was awesome.
