  • We came here almost by accident, we were leaving from Húsavík, but we decided to stop to visit it. The museum is run by a family, it's all homemade, but in a really complete and professional way. It is varied because it speaks of the first explorers of the Arctic, of the Vikings, but also of the astronauts. It gives a lot of space to women too, not leaving them in the background. The owner of the house also came to tell us in person some interesting fact. It was delicious! We then made a donation via Instagram, because the price is not established. To visit!

  • We discovered this great museum by accident. It is furnished with a lot of love and passion and offers exciting topics on the themes of Apollo missions, Vikings, polar explorers and caves as well as volcanoes. You don't pay fixed admission, but can end up voluntarily making a donation as the museum is constantly expanding. Absolutely worth seeing:)

  • The museum founder obviously is a fan of U.S. space travel, in particular of the Apollo missions. Not only much interesting on this topic (of course with Iceland-related) was collected, it even many members of the old Moon rider were guided to Husavik. Very interesting to talk with the owner of the Museum about it.
