Icelandic Aviation Museum

Aviation is a necessity on Iceland, not only to reach the island itself but also for being able to reach all the different regions. You’ll be surprised how many small regional airports you can discover there. Therefore it is no surprise that there is a nice aviation museum and it is directly located next to the airport of Akureyri. That also gives you the nice opportunity to have a look on the airfield and to observe the most often tiny planes starting and landing.

The museum is mainly one hall with lots of planes and technologies used for aviation. You can learn here that the first flight was in 1919 and that the national airline Icelandair was launched in 1937 as a connection to Akureyri. Some planes can be entered, others are hanging from the ceiling. It is not a vast collection but a nice insight into Icelandic aviation.
