Randulffs-sjóhús
Randulff´s Sea House is located by the sea in Eskifjördur. It is during the summer months 2011 and Randulff´s restaurant serves dinner according to a traditional local menu in a unique atmosphere. Randulff´s seahouse is also open for groups by arrangement. Randulff's Sea House is open during the summer from 12 - 21 every day of the week. The chefs have made a marvelous menu that focuses on fresh and local ingredients.   Randulff´s Sea House is a beautifully preserved shore-building towards the eastern end of Eskifjörður. Today this fine old house preserves both many artifacts and a lingering atmosphere from the days when the establishment of a herring fishery led to the first real growth of the fjord towns of East Iceland in the late 19th and early 20th century. Built by Norwegian Peter Randulff in 1890, it provided a station for landing and processing herring caught within the fjord through to 1930 when there was no longer sufficient herring coming into the fjord to sustain the fishery. When herring finally returned to the seas off East Iceland in the late 1950s the fishery involved large ships fishing further off-shore and landing their catches at ports like Siglufjörður, Húsavík, and Vopnafjörður in the north. As a result, for the next 75 years, this sturdy old sea-house remained closed. In 1980 The East Iceland Maritime Museum (Sjóminjasafn Austurlands) became a part-owner of Randulff´s sea-house leading to the restoration of both the exterior of the building and the adjoining jetty. In 2003 the society became the sole owner of the house and in 2008 was re-opened in co-operation with the nearby Mjóeyri guesthouse and tourism centre. It has since been available both as an extension of the excellent Eskifjörður maritime museum and as a place where groups are able to sample traditional Icelandic fare in a setting that has changed little in the past one hundred years. It also provides the base from which Mjóeyri guesthouse rents out small boats with outboard motors for recreational fishing within the fjord where cod and haddock are still plentiful.

French sailors in Iceland
The avant-garde exhibition in The French Museum in Fáskrúðsfjörður is the newest of Fjarðabyggð's museums and collections. This museum is located in two stately buildings, the Doctor's House and the French Hospital as they are called, built by the French fishermen around 1900. However, the main attraction of the exhibition is situated in a tunnel that connects the two buildings. The entrance to the museum is from the hotel reception area in the Doctor's House.  In the museum, the interesting history and legacy of the French sailors in Iceland is shown by means of the latest multimedia technology. The French sailors maintained a station at Fáskrúðsfjörður from the mid-19thcentury till the First World War, with the number of French sailing ships off Iceland peaking at between 200 and 300. However, the history of French cod fishing off Iceland goes back even further, all the way to the 17th century. During this long history, many ships never made it back to their home country. It is estimated that up to 400 of them were lost around Iceland, along with 4,000-5,000 seamen. Down by the French graveyard, a monument has been erected in honour of these heroes of the sea who were subjected to hard work, dampness and cold, not to mention accidents.   Their fishing operations were highly important for villages on the northern French coast; for example, in Dunkerque in the 1860s, approximately 6,000 people were employed in relation to fishing off Iceland. These operations were also significant for other villages, such as Paimpol and Gravelines. The renovation of the French heritage buildings, one of the largest historical restoration outside the capitol area, was finished in the summer of 2014. The five French buildings play a substantial role in local culture and society in Fáskrúðsfjörður. The French Hospital, for example, now serves as a hotel with the restaurant l'Abri on the ground floor. The Chapel is the only building that still maintains its original role and is open for guests of the museum. The museum is open daily from 10:00 to 18:00 (from May to end of August, or by agreement).

Fosshotel Eastfjords operates in 4 historic buildings previously made for French fishermen in the years between 1898-1907. The most famous of them is the French hospital, built in 1903. In 1939, the house was disassembled, moved and became deserted for almost 50 years. In 2008, a decision was made to reassemble it at its original location. The hospital has 13 rooms of the total 47 rooms at the hotel. The Doctor's house, located across from the French hospital, hosts the reception, and the Chapel, built in 1898, is alongside the reception hosting 4 rooms. In 2016, the hotel's renovations received the European Heritage Awards from the European Commission and Europa Nostra. The hotel includes L'Abri, a French-inspired restaurant and a museum devoted to the French fishermen. 47 rooms L'Abri restaurant Bar Breakfast available Free WiFi Free parking Museum Part of Íslandshótel
Skaftfell Center for Visual Art
Skaftfell Center for Visual Art is situated in Austurvegur 42 in Seyðisfjörður, in a grand timber house built-in 1907. The house contains the Skaftfell gallery and bookshop on the middle floor, the artist residency apartment on the top floor, and the Skaftfell Bistro and library on the ground floor. Skaftfell’s role is to present, discuss, and encourage the development of contemporary art in East Iceland. The center was founded in the year 1998 by a group of art enthusiasts, the Skaftfell Group, in memory of the artist Dieter Roth (1930-1998) who lived and worked in Seyðisfjörður for periods of time during the last decade of his life. In the Skaftfell Bistro you can find many of his prints and artist books on display. Skaftfell is an important meeting point for artists and locals. The art center’s activities involve exhibitions and events throughout the year, alongside an international artist residency program and an art education program. Every year Skaftfell organizes and hosts seminars with art students in collaboration with the Icelandic Art Academy and other schools and institutions on all school levels. Skaftfell is also the guardian of a minuscule house in Seyðisfjörður, Geirahús, previously owned by the local naive artist Ásgeir Emilsson (1931-1999). Now a tiny museum, Geirahús can be visited by appointment. Another artwork to visit is Tvísöngur, a sound sculpture on the hills of the fjord, developed by Lukas Kühne with Skaftfell in 2012. Since its foundation, Skaftfell has hosted a large number of exhibitions and projects by international, national and local artists, with an emphasis on contemporary art. Skaftfell has an important role in the area as a provider of information and education about art and art-related subjects. In 2013 Skaftfell received the Icelandic Eyrarrósin award for outstanding cultural leadership in a rural area.
