Experience Vestmannaeyjar like never before


Sagnheimar Museum

The Folk Museum of Vestmannaeyjar is a new museum built on old traditions. In addition to the many artifacts housed there, today’s technology gives the history and culture a new dimension. While the adults are learning about the stories of fishing, cliff hunting, the Eldfell eruption of 1973, and the Algerian pirate raid of 1627, the children can dress themselves in pirate costumes and search for hidden treasure in the pirate cave.

The puffins are here!

In Vestmannaeyjar you have a great opportunity to see life puffins flying around the mountains and sitting in the cliffs.
