The Safnahús Borgarfjarðar
is our museum here in Borgarnes Iceland. It houses two permanent exhibitions. One is a photo exhibition of children and families throughout the century in Iceland who lived in the area and the other is a extensive collection of prepared birds that migrate this way. In the hallway there is a third exhibition which is about the french explorer Charcot, his crew and the story of their shipwreck off the shores of Borgarnes. On the right as you enter there is a public library. The main hall is an excellent spacious well lit exhibition space featuring artists works about the region.
