Established in the same building are BŠringsstofa
photo museum and The Saga Center exhibition.
BŠringsstofa is a photo museum that offers guests to
sit down and watch a slideshow of old photos from
Grundarfj÷rur, bringing them back into the days of old.
The Saga Center exhibition displays an old
fishing boat and gear plus a children's toy collection
from the latter part of the 20th century.
The boat Brana was buildt in 1913. It is six oars rowboat,
typical for Breiafj÷rur area, made of oak and pine wood.
Later there was innstalled a motor. The Brana is surrounded
with fishing gear and other utensils for farming.
Ůˇrarb˙ is a toys collection from the fifties.
The exhibition is an imitation of a small shop owned by
Ůˇrur Pßlsson who owned and drove the bus that went by
schedule between Grundarfj÷rur and ReykjavÝk 1946-1966.
The convenience store was just a relatively normal shop
until Christmas. Then it changed into a toy shop.
Toys were collected from households and Ebay.
On a shelf are sea shells and animal bones that were used
as childrenĹs toys in past centuries.
Both museums are free of charge and are open
from 09-17 every day during the summer and
