A great way to learn about the heritage and culture of island is by visiting the Turf House in Selfoss. The turf houses have played an important role in Icelandic lives thanks to the insulation and warmth they provide. Visitors can explore the old farmstead which is a collection of the houses built from turf. There are a collection of photographs and models that help visitors understand the structure of such houses and how they work to provide insulation. The museum provides ample information of how the Icelandic culture was developed in these houses. When here, visitors can sample some of the traditional countryside recipes in Iceland in the café present inside the museum.
