The museum at Ósvör (Bolungarvík, Iceland) is a reconstructed fishing station, recreated as a memorial of almost forgotten Icelandic industrial activity.

It is a fine example of how seamanship and fishing at sea was performed originally. The equipment as well as the atmosphere is representing how everyday life really was during the era of the rowboats.

I still feel the smell of the place. The wood of old, humidity... It was actually a very comfortable feeling.
