Skógar, formerly the site of a regional secondary school and a major farm. There was also a church here until the year 1890. Skógar is the location of the Skógar Museum, the largest Folk Museum outside the Reykjavík area. It preserves among other things old tools, implements, a church and farm houses fully furnished, showing the living conditions of the gone past. The chief attraction of the Skógar Museum, and no doubt its most historically valuable asset, is the eight-oar fishing boat Pétursey, Icelands best-kown boat of its kind. The legendary ring from Thrasi‘s treasure chest, once hidden behind the Skógafoss waterfall, is also on display. The latest addition to the Skógar Museum is the Museum of Transport which explores the history of transport, communications and technology in Iceland.
