East Iceland Heritage Museum

East Iceland Heritage Museum – The old rural household as a self-sufficient entity On display are items that belong to the history of the old rural community in East Iceland as it was until the mid-20th century. 

Most of them relate to their practical role in everyday life while others bear witness to that life was not only about basic survival but also about making beautiful things for decoration and pleasure. 

Reindeers in East Iceland The East is the only part of Iceland where you will find wild reindeers. 

They contribute to the unique nature and are strongly connected to the region’s history and culture.
