Museum documenting the harsh realities of living in Iceland are both informative and eye opening. You can also visit the primitive homes they lived in. Good place to stop for a quick lunch of soup and sandwich.

Superb overview of Iceland's past in terms of effects by both humans and natural forces on the environment. Thoughtfully organized and insightful. I will look at Iceland in a new way following my tour of the museum.

The visitor centre at the Soil Conservation Service in Sagnagardur, provides an excellent and easy to understand exhibition about the land of Iceland - its formation, history and restoration. The visitor centre is also only a few kilometres from the Old Farmhouse Laufás so you truly get a feeling for the country in two short visits.
