History at every step!

There are few places where museums and exhibits have flourished as in Skagafj÷r­ur, which has a rich cultural heritage and an abundance of historical sites. The Skagafj÷r­ur Heritage Museum engages in exhibitions, conservation and research. In the old turf farmhouse at GlaumbŠr, the museum has for over half a century been showing visitors what 18th- and 19th-century life was like in rural Iceland. There are also numerous other institutions and exhibits which are interesting to visit, for example the Icelandic Emigration Centre in Hofsˇs, the VÝ­imřrarkirkja turf church near the village of VarmahlÝ­, the Minjah˙si­ museum in Sau­ßrkrˇkur, the Skagafj÷r­ur Transport Museum and the historical bishopĺs seat of Hˇlar in Hjaltadalur valley.
