  • An excellent piece of history. Very nice exhibition. I really liked that you could approach and look closely at most objects, very few were behind bars like your typical museum. You will leave this place in awe of the amount of work and energy that went into the herring industry through the ages!
  • Unexpectedly awesome. Great exhibition. I am a machine geek so I love the display.
  • A must-see when you visit Siglufjörður. One of the more interesting museums I've ever been to.
  • A very extensive and hands-on museum. I took a 7 year old here and she loved how interactive and immersive the museum is. A great place for the family to explore.
  • Great museum showing many important items ranging from personal items to a factory and boats.
