Akureyri Folk Museum

Located in the oldest section of Akureyri, this well designed folk museum hosts two permanent exhibitions representing life in Eyjafjordur Fjord as well the development of the town of Akureyri from 874 until the early 19th century.

There are a number of interesting pieces spanning the range from ancient Viking artifacts to local milk cartons from the 18th century. There are also excellent black and white photograph depicting local residents over the years and a visit to the adjacent church and museum garden for a picnic is highly recommended.
