Heritage Museum

The East Iceland Heritage Museum located in Egilsstadir takes a lively approach to the preservation of local culture and traditions with spinning and weaving presentations given during the summer months.

The diverse artifact collection includes a restored turf farmhouse and a variety of ’hands-on’ items for guests to truly experience and understand the legacy of the regions’ past. The folk museum also boasts a cafe and a small shop featuring local Icelandic design and craft.
