Skógar Folk Museum is really near Skógafoss waterfall - perfect to combine for a mixture of nature and culture!
The Skógar folk museum is located on the south coast of Iceland, in the small village of Skógar, by Skógafoss, a large waterfall. The museum has been in operation for more than 60 years, and sports items such as a historic fishing boat, a reconstructed turf house, an old church and a schoolhouse, a café and a museum shop.
The turf house is a reconstruction of the vernacular architecture of Iceland, which was made by lifting layers of peat or turf and stacking them in an way that became incredibly insulated, with wooden finishing and grass growing on the roof. This was the way Icelanders survived the cold for a thousand years but not many of them survive today,
In addition to this the Skógar museum now houses a museum of transportation which focuses on the development of transport, communication and technology in 19th and 20th century Iceland - starting with the working horse and all the way up to the digital technology of modern days.
