MUSEUMS

Although the whale watching is the main activity in Húsavík, you have to know that this town has much more to offer. If you’re interested in indoor activities, there are 3 great museums you should consider:

  • The Whale Museum, where you’ll have the possibility to see real whale skeletons of different species, and the chance to learn much more about these fascinating animals
  • Safnahús, for an immersion in Icelandic  folklore and history
  • The Exploration Museum, with stories of explorers of all times, from Middle Age Vikings to Polar explorers and Astronauts in Space
