Sigurgeir's Bird Museum

The museum is one of a kind, built in the memory of Sigurgeir, a great bird collector. Sigurgeir´s bird museum was opened on 17th August 2008 and it is one of the most beautiful natural history museums in the country and the perfect spot for bird watching by lake Mývatn. The museum only needs 2 birds to own all the Icelandic breeding birds, one of them, the sea eagle, they have on loan from the Icelandic Institute of Natural History, Akureyrarstofa, but the other is the Phalaropus fulicarius. The museum has about 330 stuffed birds and about 500 eggs. The gallery has 280 birds and 300 eggs on display.

A must stop for families, bird lovers and photographers!
