Museum in Fáskrúðsfjörður

Accessed through the lobby of Fosshotel Eastfjords, this quality museum (with very pricey admission) paints a detailed portrait of the French connection to the fjord. The hotel's reception is in the old doctor's house, and a walkway under Hafnargata links it to the old hospital (now home to hotel rooms). Check out the re-created sailors' quarters in the walkway. Museum entry is free for hotel guests.
