The Technical Museum of East Iceland was established in 1984. The museum´s main focus is on the era of technical progress in the East, 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. Exhibitions are animated and seek to recreate the atmosphere of the times they portray. 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.

Austurland

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
