The Garðskagi Folk Museum

The Folk Museum is divided into a maritime museum and a local history museum. Opened in 1995, it features various artifacts from the story of Garður that demonstrate farming and seafaring of its residents. The impressive motor collection is what sets Garðskagi Folk Museum apart from any other museum, with its 85 different motors, all in working condition. Artifacts from life on land include: farming artifacts, a century old turning lathe, a homemade organ more than a century old, and other social artifacts.
