Maritime Museum Re-opened

 "Fish & people" is dedicated to fishing in Iceland and Reykjavík in regards to history and culture. On display are artifacts, photos, texts from the latter half of the 19th century to the present day.

"Melckmeyt 1659" tells the story of a Dutch merchant vessel that stranded near Flatey. It was 300 years later that divers discovered the shipwreck, and in 2016 archeologist studied the ship and its history.
