KVIKAN – House of Culture and Natural Resources

As you stroll along one of the best harbours in Iceland, you will arrive at the Icelandic Saltfish Museum, where you can learn more about the industry that is an important element in Iceland’s economic development and prosperity. It opened in 2002 and is dedicated to the history of the salt fish, with a vividly depicted exhibition on the struggle for survival, which is a metaphor for the country as well as the salt fish industry.

The saltfishmuseum is located only a few minutes away from the Blue Lagoon. Visitors are guided through the museum with a CD player and can choose between Icelandic, English, German and French. There is also a Caféteria.
