The Icelandic Saltfish Museum, Grindavik Reviews

  • It wasnt open when out was supposed to be.

  • Nice introduction to Iceland in general. Bit pricey for such a small museum, but you get free coffee and super nice people

  • The museum has two distinct sections – geology and fishing. Both are interesting and have plenty of information in Icelandic and English. Worth a visit if in the area. Also a nice pizza restaurant across the street.

  • Flott
