Ever since 1952 the turf farmhouse of Glaumbaer has served as the main exhibition for the Skagafjordur Heritage Museum. Within the authentic buildings, everyday tools are displayed in their natural environment, bearing witness to vanished times and the daily activities of people in Iceland's past. At the Glaumbaer site you'll also find two 19th-century wooden houses, Gilsstofa and Ashus. The latter of these serves as a coffeehouse and museum store, so that visitors can absorb the historical atmosphere while tasting delicious breads and pastries baked in traditional Icelandic fashion.
