Breiðdalssetur, Research and Heritage centre

Breiðdalssetur, Research and Heritage centre, occasionally also called „the Walker Centre“, is housed in the oldest building of Breiðdalsvík, the old cooperative „Gamla Kaupfélagið“, built in 1906. Breiðdalssetur facilitates earth and literary research activities focused on East Iceland, as well as hosting exhibitions on geology, linguistics and local history. Actual exhibitions are about: The geology and minerals of the Eastern Fjords and the world famous British volcanologist George P.L.Walker (1926-2005); a small stone collection; the writer and linguist Stefán Einarsson (1897-1972) from Breiðdalur valley and the history of the village Breiðdalsvík. — We are looking forward to seeing you!
