The Sigurgeir´s Bird Museum is located on the farm Ytri-Neslönd beside Lake Mývatn. It was established following the pioneering work of Sigurgeir Stefánsson who lived at the farm. Sigurgeir’s bird museum is considered the largest known private bird collection in Iceland.
The interactive display of the bird collection is both interesting and educational. It contains a specimen of all of the icelandic breeding birds, with the exception of just one. In addition there is a multi-lingual computer guide to Iceland’s birds, a shop with refreshments, bird books are available, there is a logbook of recent sightings, telescopes are set up to watch the birds on the lake and a remote camera displays live wildlife images from one of the lake’s islands.
