The Hnjótur Folk Museum is located on the way to Látrabjarg, 36 km. from Patreksfjörður.
The Folk Museum at Hnjótur was opened in June 1983. There you will find many remarkable items from old times, demonstrating means of occupation and survival on land as well as sea. Some of these are related to gathering of eggs in Látrabjarg, and there is a special section displaying the rescue of seamen in great danger. In the museum there are a few boats as well and equipment for whale hunting. At Hnjótur there is also an Aviation Museum displaying remarkable items related to the history of flying in Iceland. No one traveling in the south region of the WestFjords should miss the opportunity to visit the Folk Museum at Hnjótur.
