Westfjords Heritage Museum

Westfjords Museum is located in one of the 18th century buildings in Neðstikaupstaður at the tip of the spit which the town of Ísafjörður stands.

Fisheries have always been the most important economic activity in the Westfjords, and the museum gives a unique insight into the rich maritime history and culture of the area.

The Old Blacksmiths Workshop in Þingeyri is a part of the museum.
