Technical Museum of East Iceland

The Technical Museum of East Iceland has opened again and with the exhibition

Búðareyri: A story of transformations

The exhibition explores the history of Búðareyri from 1880 to the present day and the transformations of settlement, industry, society, and nature that have taken place there. These changes tell not only a local story, but also reflect on a much larger history of technological advancements and societal changes in Iceland and beyond over the past 150 years.

The exhibition is housed in and around the premises of Vélsmiðja Seyðisfjarðar (Seyðisfjörður Mechanical Shop). After the company ceased operations in 1993, the space has been used for exhibitions by the Technical Museum of East Iceland.

The history of Búðareyri is characterized by significant transformations, which are explored through several themes, overlapping with each other:

  • The beginning of settlement
  • The Mechanical Shop
  • Communications and the telegraph
  • The occupation years
  • The harbor and the fjord
  • Trade and commerce
  • Natural conditions and landslides
