History Museum
Get a window into the Iceland of the past at Skogasafn. What started as a humble private collection more than half a century ago has developed into a true museum. See historical houses and workshops, a consecrated church, and a schoolhouse. The collection of artifacts includes authentic pieces of furniture, tools, home appliances, handicrafts, and, of course, fishing boats, which have always played an important role in Iceland's economy. The latest addition to the complex, the Museum of Transport, tells the story of communication technology development in Iceland. If you're visiting with a larger group, make a reservation in advance. Add Skogasafn and other attractions to your Skogar trip itinerary using our Skogar itinerary maker.
