There is no separating Iceland’s identity from its maritime heritage. Caught between two oceans, the island’s people depended for a long time on the sea to provide them with food and raw materials. This museum in Reykjavik’s harbour is thus dedicated mainly to the fishing heritage of these peoples. It focuses on how fish farming has evolved over the centuries, particularly in the 20th century. Other main exhibits focus on the history of sailing. Another major exhibit though focuses on the rescue vehicle Odinn, which houses an exhibit on the cod wars between the 1950s and 1970s. Check the museum website for details on upcoming events and also for their Christmas Market.
