The Herring Museum

The Herring Museum is the largest seafaring and industrial museum in the country. The exhibits tell the tale of hunting and processing these "silver darlings", and are housed in three widely differing premises. At the boathouse, ships and boats lie by the pier, recreating a 1950s harbour atmosphere. In good weather during summer, people can be observed salting the herring; an accordionist provides the music of the day and dancing on the pier completes a day of hard work. In Grána the story of herring meal processing is told - this being an activity which has long been called the first heavy industry in Iceland. A small 1935-40 herring factory has been set up.
