We love to visit this museum. One man made all of the boats. They are replicas of real boats and ships.

An insight in to the Icelandic fishing industry. Explained how they did things years ago. Also hundreds of models of fishing boats trawlers all built in the same scale so you get an idea how much things have grown over the years. Very interesting place

The museum was recommended by a taxi driver. The ships were varied and fascinating. A wheelchair was available.

I wandered over to this center from where I was staying and was surprised. From the outside it looked small, but there was so much history inside. The craftsmanship of the boats and ships is superb. And the cost was free!
