Folk Museum in Garður & Lighthouses

The municipal museum in Garðskagi is located in a natural paradise, which blends the beauty of the landscape with its rich animal and bird life. The museum was first opened in November 1995 in the old processing houses in Garður. The museum has both a Folk and Maritime Museum. It has an outstanding engines collection of Guðni Ingimundarson. There are over 60 engines on display and almost every one of them in functional. Many important items from the municipal history of Garður are located in the museum, items which were essential for the livelihood on both land and sea The Museum is a great point of interest for visitors as it tells the story of how fishing developed and the history of the people who lived and worked in the community. A restaurant and camping site with facilities is on site and if you are lucky you might see dolphins and whales near the shore from the terrace of the restaurant.
