Now spring is finally in the air here in Húsavík after a few days of late winter. We at the Whale Museum in Húsavík can sense that the tourism in the area is picking up and the attendance of the museum has been rapidly growing in the month of May.
Opening hours have been extended in May and the museum is now open every day from 09:00 to 18:00. From June to August, it will be open daily from 08:30 to 18:30.
A visit to our gift shop is worthwhile. We have a wide range of souvenirs, books, clothing and Icelandic wool blankets. New postcards are in, with beautiful landscape photographs of the area and of the whales in skjálfandi bay – and more are on the way, with unique artwork by Spanish artist Rena Ortega.
