Hvoll Heritage Museum

Hvoll Heritage Museum’s collections comprises thousands of items, most of them contributed by local people in Dalvik, Svarfaðardalur and Árskógsströnd. They include various tools and furnishings which provide insight into life and work in and around Dalvík, and the history of the community, in addition to items of art and craft made by local people. The natural history collection contains a large number of icelandic birds and mammals, and some marine creatures, along with collections of plants, shells, eggs and rocks. The museum includes exhibits on a number of people from Svarfaðardalur who became nationally famous: Jóhann Pétursson, known as “The Giant,” Icelandic president Dr. Kristján Eldjárn, and Friðrik Friðriksson, founder of the YMCA in Iceland.
