The Saltfish Museum

Saltfish is undeniably responsible for the prosperity of the Icelandic nation, particularly during the late 19th and early 20th century when the industry was at its peak.

The Icelandic Saltfish Museum located near the Grindavik harbor vividly recreates the atmosphere of an Icelandic fishing village from the 1930’s in a natural setting.

Learn about the struggle for survival during these times through the exhibition which engages all the senses through figures, images, audio recordings, text and film.
