History Museums East of Iceland

The French Museum

The French Museum traces the history of French sailors in Iceland in an interesting and exciting way. Fáskrúðsfjörður has a strong historical connection to France, hosting the weekend-long ‘French Days’ festival each year. The museum is situated in the French Hospital in Fáskrúðsfjörður, where the Icelandic Antiquities Preservation Society has rebuilt several period French houses, and restored them to their original state.
