Technical Museum of the Eastfjords

- Museums

Tækniminjafn Austusrlands is one of the buildings in Seyðisfjörður that was hit by a landslide in December 2020. As a result, the museum is currently closed, but the museum will open again this summer.

The museum´s main focus is on the influx of modern times around 1880 to 1950. Technical innovations in areas such as mechanics, electricity, communications, telephony, commerce, and architecture are interlaced with changes in lifestyle and milieu. We also serve as a museum for Seyðisfjörður local heritage. Exhibitions are animate and seek to recreate the atmosphere of the times they portray. The museum surroundings are an open-air recreation area, outstanding for taking walks and enjoying each other's company. We support a family-friendly policy and work progressively on producing informative settings as well as constructive and worthwhile entertainment for guests of all ages.

How to get here

The museum is situated on the south shore of Seyðisfjörður town about 800 meters from the town center and about 500 meters from the Ferry Terminal/ Information Center. If you arrive via the mountain road you will cross the first bridge on the right side and drive about 1 km along the shore road, you will find the museum on the left-hand side.

Accessibility

A large part of our permanent exhibitions are on the ground floor and can be traversed in wheelchairs. The telegraph station has nevertheless been on the upper floor has no access to wheelchairs. None of the museum buildings were originally designed to be accessible to all and therefore present challenges in providing easy and independent access. We will keep working so the access to this space can be guaranteed to everybody
