Skagafjörður Transportation Museum

- Museums

The Vintage Auto Museum at Stóragerði in Skagafjörður formally opened in 2004. The museum has on exhibition around 100 vehicles; cars, buses, motorcycles, snowmobiles, agricultural machinery, and a lot of small knickknacks tied to the Icelandic transportation heritage. At least 250-300 vehicles and machinery in various condition are on dispay outside the museum, which intrigues the museum's guests.


The museum was built by Gunnar Kr. Þórðarson and his wife, Sólveig Jónasdóttir. Gunnar had masters in Auto Mechanic and Sólveig is a primary school teacher. Gunnar always carried a passion for the transportation heritage and collected from a young age a large proportion of the showpieces. Gunnar also, througout the years, remodeled both vehicles and machinery with great success. But to ensure the best possible preservation of the showpieces of various sizes he had collected throughout the years, a warehouse had to be built, resulting in the opening of this magnificent museum for all to enjoy!


It is worth mentioning that aftert he museum opened, a few of the guests have donated both cars and machines to the museum in near to impeccable condition, and generous gifts like that are completely priceless. Gunnar's brothers, Sigurmon Þórðarson from Hofsós and Páll Hólm Þórðarson from Kópavogur have throughout the years been very helpful with the remodeling of various objects and in collecting showpieces across the country.


The official opening of the museum is during the summer months from June 1st through September 30th. Opening hours are daily from 11 am to 6 pm. Groups are welcomed by appointment during winter.
