Technical Museum of East Iceland

The Technical Museum of East Iceland was established in 1984. The museum’s main focus is on the influx of modern times around 1880 to 1960. Technical innovations in areas such as mechanics, electricity, communications, telephony, commerce and architecture are interlaced with changes in lifestyle and milieu. Exhibitions are animate and seek to recreate the atmosphere of the times they portray. The museum is also an open air recreation area, outstanding for taking walks and enjoying each others company. The Technical Museum supports a family-friendly policy and works progressively on producing informative settings as well as constructive and worthwhile entertainment for guests of all ages. In addition the museum serves as a research centre and teaching facility for all levels of education. Staff members also carry out independent research projects relating to the museum’s area of interest.

The Blacksmith Festival takes place annually at the Technical Museum.
