Turf houses of Mánarbakki folk museum

Twenty five kilometers to the north of Húsavík, set in an idyllic looking series of black and white turf houses, sits a folk museum showcasing relics of a bygone Iceland era. Focusing a little more on the 20th century than other museums of this type, once you pass the wood carving of the limbless nude at the gate, expect diverse arrays of confectionery wrappers, porcelain dogs and brightly colored Icelandic folk art.
