Old mechanical shop - local heritage

The museum´s main focus is on the influx of modern times around 1880 to 1950. Technical innovations in areas such as mechanics, electricity, communications, telephony, commerce and architecture are interlaced with changes in lifestyle and milieu. We also serve as a museum for Seyðisfjörður local heritage.  Exhibitions are animate and seek to recreate the atmosphere of the times they portray. The museum surroundings are an open air recreation area, outstanding for taking walks and enjoying each others company. We support a family-friendly policy and work progressively on producing informative settings as well as constructive and worthwhile entertainment for guests of all ages.  Prices, opening hours and location.
