The Technical Museum of East Iceland is a non-profit organization. Our costs are mostly paid by public funds and donations from the general public. We are grateful for any support given.

How to get here

The museum is situated on the south shore of Seyðisfjörður town about 800 meters from the town center and about 500 meters from the Ferry Terminal/ Information Center. If you arrive via the mountain road you will cross the first bridge on the right side and drive  about 1 km along the shore road, you will find the museum on the left hand side.


A large part of our permanent exhibitions are on ground floor and can be traversed in wheelchairs. The telegraph station nevertheless been in the upper floor has no access to wheelchairs. None of the museum buildings were originally designed to be accessible to all and therefore present challenges in providing easy and independent access. 
We will keep working so the access to this space can be guaranteed to everybody.
