Mánárbakki Museum

Travel through time. Iceland has gone through tremendous changes over the centuries and specially the past few decades. Over the years many artifacts and antiques have vanished or become scarce. At Mánárbakki Museum, located on Tjörnes peninsula about 15 minutes north of Húsavík, you can travel through time as these artifacts and memories have been carefully preserved in a traditional turf house. In the yellow house of “Thorshammer,” you’ll discover various exciting items that recreate the local history from early settlement to the modern day.
