The Akureyri Industrial Museum houses artefacts connected with the industry of ages past, from margarine makers, printing presses and lathes, to sewing machines and instruments of watchmaking. The museum hosts a significant number of tools from the “old factories” which were used to produce some of the most familiar Icelandic brands of food and household products. On the top floor of the museum, there is a display of the famous clothes and shoes produced in Akureyri in the past century, with well-known Icelandic labels every child would recognise. The museum displays machinery, products and pictures of people at work.
