It cost us $26 dollars Canadian with the exchange rate. We were a bit reluctant at that price but we went in anyway. It was very informative and the skeletons of the whales were amazing. Go see it.

Another nice nerdy place to go in Husavik. You can spend hours reading about all aspects of whales (and whaling), and the carcass exhibition (included a Blue Whale!) is fascinating. Great kids spaces too!

We were on an escorted trip. While all the others were going on a whale watching trip, we decided to come here. The entrance ticket ten months ago was ISK1500. We got a senior discount!. A whale made of wooden boards flopped at the entrance....More

The Husavik Whale Museum is beautifully designed and very informative. The highlight is the blue whale skeleton, lying on its back as it was found, it is profoundly moving, the bones of its flipper easily recognisable as the same we all have in our arm...More
