Lots of information both current and historical about arctic foxes. The staff we met were local and well informed. We could see a couple of foxes in their cages out the back.

If you like animals, this is an interesting place to visit. About $12 per person, it may be a little pricey, but at the end, you get to see live arctic foxes. We enjoyed the museum, but it’s pretty small. They have lots of pelts...More

Small but quaint museum in the scenic westfjords. The young staff were welcoming and friendly, they gave us a very informative tour around the museum. There were two orphaned foxes in the enclosure who we saw the staff interact with and feed.

This place is a must if you're in the area. Interesting and informative films and display items and friendly staff keen to discuss arctic foxes with visitors. Some rather depressing facts about foxes experiences with mankind are given, but definitely needed to be. Lovely to...More
