Hafnleysa Maritime Museum is a fun and enlightening place to visit when in South Iceland. Located in the small coastal village of Vík, this museum tells the extraordinary maritime history of the south coast. It showcases the full-scale Skaftfellingur ship, which served on the Atlantic in WWII and is remembered for saving a crew from a sinking German U-464 submarine in 1942. Visitors can purchase an entrance ticket for 500 ISK... dead cheap!
