Glaumbær Folk Museum

Glaumbær Folk Museum

 
Glaumbær Folk museum was originally founded as the Skagafjörður Heritage Museum in 1948 with the first exhibition opened in 1952 at Glaumbær Farm. The museum focuses on rural life in the 18th -19th century Iceland. The buildings on the farm date from the 18th - 19th century and clearly demonstrate how the first timber houses were built in the region. The museum also houses a Tea Room – Áskaffi which serves light traditional Icelandic food, and if booked in advance, full meals are available.
