Create an itinerary including Skogar Museum
Get a window into the Iceland of the past at Skogar Museum. What started as a humble private collection more than half a century ago has developed into a true museum. See historical houses and workshops, a consecrated church, and a schoolhouse. The collection of artifacts includes authentic pieces of furniture, tools, home appliances, handicrafts, and, of course, fishing boats, which have always played an important role in Iceland's economy. The latest addition to the complex, the Museum of Transport, tells the story of communication technology development in Iceland. If you're visiting with a larger group, make a reservation in advance. Skogar Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • The museum is next to Skogafoss waterfall and was surprisingly quiet when we visited. For us, the highlights were the recreated houses in the open air museum which you could go in and the 15 minute...

  • nice place to pass by visit. you could just take photos outside without pay the ticket and get into the museum. Summer time no aurora.
  • Lovely museum tucked between two stunning waterfalls. There is a cute café and gift shop inside. Highly recommend stopping by!
