The Herring Era Museum

The Herring Era Museum is an awarded maritime and industrial museum – where the “glory days” of Iceland’s herring fisheries and industry are brought back to life in three different buildings. Róaldsbrakki, a 1907 salting station and bunkhouse. Grána is a 1930s-era fishmeal and oil factory. The Boathouse, the town’s thriving harbour of the 1950s with many old fishing boats at the dock. The Herring Era Museum was the winner of the Icelandic Museum Award 2000 and won the European Museum Award 2004 as Europe’s best new museum of industry and technology.
