Thank you for bringing our awareness to this. We totally forgot to change our opening hours to off-season closure. Hope you will visit us again one day.

This museum provides an opportunity to glimpse daily Icelandic life in the West Fjords. It varies between humorous, soulful and heartfelt. The curators have done a wonderful job at providing artistic historical context more recent than the Sagas. Well worth an afternoon visit if you're...More
