Hnjotur - The Egill Olafsson Museum

The Egill Olafsson Museum at Hnjotur in Orlygshofn preserves local history through a potpourri exhibition of farming and fishing equipment and other unique objects of historical interest collected by the museum’s namesake, Egill Olafsson.

Located across the fjord from Patreksfjordur, this charming museum is well worth visiting to gander unusual treasures such as a Russian airplane that was stranded in Iceland in 1993.
