Our stop for today was at the Skógar Folk Museum. It’s purpose is to preserve the cultural heritage of the Rangárvallasýsla and Vestur-Skaftafellsýsla region of Iceland. Collections were started in 1945 and continue to this day.
The museum also has a small cafeteria, with gluten free and dairy free choices. It had much needed coffee this morning, too.
The museum is separated into three parts. The transport museum was full of interesting artifacts – not all strictly transport based. There was even a collection of cell phones showing how they have changed over the years.
The outdoor museum included a church, school, turf farm of huts, and two houses from around the late 1800s.
The main building included agriculture, crafts, fisheries and natural history. The regional archives are also located in this building, although we did not go into the archives today.
