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.

This Saturday the yield from Printing Matter, a thematic residency organized by Skaftfell in collaboration with the Technical Museum of East Iceland, will be on public display.
This is the third edition of the Printing Matter residency. Seven artists from around the world have been participating in the three-week residency, starting at the beginning of September.
The group’s working process has been emphasizing artist bookmaking and different printing methods as well as creating a platform for knowledge exchange, dialogue and collaboration between participants. Instructors are Åse Eg Jörgensen and Litten Nyström.
During the last few weeks, the group has enjoyed the fjord’s beautiful autumn colors, going on a lot of hikes between making prints and artist books.
The exhibition takes place at the Technical Museum in Seyðisfjörður from 16.00 to 18.00. Everyone is welcome, and kids can experiment with simple printing methods.
