Herring Era Museum Siglufjordur, Iceland
#1 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
The Herring Era Museum chronicles the fascinating, boom-bust history of the herring fishery and I have to say, it is one of the very best industrial heritage museums I have ever visited (and wherever I go, I make...

The Old Farmhouse Laufas Akureyri, Iceland

We took a day tour on our recent visit to Akureyri, and our first stop was the Laufas museum.
If you are interesed in icelandic history, this is a great museum to see how we lived just few decates ago.
The Husavik Whale Museum Husavik, Iceland

It was as good as any museums we saw in Reykjjavik.
Located in Húsavík, the Whale Capital of Europe, this museum has many different (and real) skeletons of whales on display, and great knowledge both on the biology of whales and the history of whaling.
Glaumbaer Museum Varmahlid, Iceland
#4 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
This was one of the most fascinating museums I have ever been to.
The museum is set in the old vicarage of Glaumbaer and gives a good introduction into life on Icelandic farms as it was from medival times to the early 20th century.

Remotely located in the countryside between Husavik and Akureyri this is a true gem of a vintage car museum.
The Aviation Museum Akureyri, Iceland
#6 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
Located next to the Akureyri airport, the museum has a nice selection of beautifully restored aircraft on display, as well as a well documented history of aviation in Iceland.
Fascinating aviation museum with around 30 varied exhibits, many associated with Iceland's own aviation history and almost all in immaculate condition.
Sigurgeirs Bird Museum Reykjahlid, Iceland

This is the best bird museum i have visited, the staff was beyond helpful and courteous and the birds were amazing!
This is a beautiful museum and a tribute to one man's incredible collection of birds and eggs.
The Exploration Museum Husavik, Iceland
#8 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
Though currently modest in size (and there are expansion plans), the museum had many interesting photos, artefacts and displays about explorers past and near-present, from the Vikings to astronauts.
Small Museum dedicated to exploration (vikings and later ages) as well as space explorations (due to astronaut trainings in Iceland).

#9 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
A very nice museum where you can learn a lot about puffins, but also about other birds, icebears and even seals.
Akureyri Museum Akureyri, Iceland
#10 of 31 Museums in North Iceland
It was a warm, inviting museum providing a fascinating insight into the history of the town.
The Museum focuses on just three main topics, old maps of Iceland, The First Lady President and the History of the Town.
