The Museum House in Husavik

On the main floor of the Culture House in Húsavík the new exhibition Man and Nature - 100 years in Þingeyjarsýsla, aims to provide insight into man´s relationship with nature in this region in the period 18250-1950, and the subsistence farming that was practised at that time, so that each farmstead was largely self-sufficient.
The maritime is on the Ground floor. It opened in 2002, in a new pyramidal unit. The exhibition includes a large number of boats, many of them built in Húsavík, as well as Hrafninn (the Raven), a gift from Norway to the community of Húsavík to mark the 1100th anniversary of the settlement of Iceland in 1974.
The exhibition also includes a wide variety of fishing gear, equipment and tools whcich were used in the fisheries, as well as in seal-hunting and shark-fishing. Films can be viewed.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
