Directions to Húsavík Whale Museum (Hvalasafnið)

The Húsavík Whale Museum was founded in 1997 with the goal of providing comprehensive and entertaining information about whales and whale habitats. The museum collaborates with the Reseach Center of the University of Iceland to create the educational component of the Húsavík summertime whale watching tours.

The museum is in Húsavík, a pretty little fishing town in the North of Iceland. The most famous sight in the town is probably Húsavíkurkirkja, a small wooden church dating back to 1907. The town is near Mývatn, Ásbyrgi, Dettifoss and Hafragilsfoss. 

From humble beginnings, the museum is now one of the most visited places in North Iceland, with over 200,000 visitors since its establishment. The 1,600m2 building provides whale skeletons of several species, along with fascinating facts about whales.

While the museum is calmer during the winter months, The Húsavík Whale Museum is open all year round.

Opening Hours:

June, July & August: 9pm - 7pm daily

May & September: 10am - 5pm daily

Winter months: 10am - 4pm weekdays

Address: Hafnarstétt 1 , North Iceland, 640 View Larger Map
