What a lovely museum, and mostly, a very informative man who welcomed us. Lots of information to read. The displays are nicely done. Unfortunately not enough time for us to read everything nor see the whole movie, as we only planned a short stop on the way, so I certainly like to go back there. Do pay a visit to this museum and get soaked in on the history.

You are foolish to bypass this little museum, archeology site, and coffee house on your way to Dynjandi falls. You will learn about the founding of Iceland, see some neat remnants of original turf buildings (if you take the time to walk around outside and read the plaques) and visit an old Icelandic church. The drive to the falls is long from anywhere, so be sure to stop here for a break, to learn something, and to see some archeological sites. Since there is no other food stops near the falls, don’t miss out on skyr cake or waffles at the cafe. The best parts of Iceland are found when willing to stop and poke around a bit.

Not worth your time to drive this far... 3.5hrs and just not worth the time at all. Save your money and time and ASK how long driving on any tour you choose vs. time at the actual site or in nature!!

We initially stopped when we saw a sign for coffee. The coffee and excellent skyr cake were served in a reconstructed traditional building. There was a very warm welcome and you felt like lingering for longer. On the site there are archaeological ruins, a small church which is open to visitors and the museum. In a chapel within the museum you are able to view a 45 min film of the life of Jon Sigurdsson. There was no obligation to watch it all but we did as it gave a good insight into the formation of Iceland as an independent country. The museum includes an exhibition of his life linked to major world events. The gentlemen looking after the museum was interesting and interested. Don’t just drive by - call in.
