The Herring Era Museum is an award-winning homage to the history of Iceland’s once prosperous herring industry. Be sure to add the charming northern town of Siglufjörður to your itinerary to catch all the museum’s festivities this summer. The Herring Era Museum commemorates this important chapter of the nation’s history. Relive the time when Siglufjörður was a thriving herring village through five exhibitions housed in Róaldsbrakki, a restored salting station.
