The museum at Ósvör (Bolungarvík, Iceland) is a reconstructed fishing station, recreated as a memorial of almost forgotten Icelandic industrial activity.
As you can see, it's a turf construction. Icelandic turf houses were the solution to a harsh climate and the relative difficulty in obtaining construction materials in sufficient quantities. They offered superior insulation compared to buildings made solely of wood or stone.
I can still feel the smell of the place. The wood of old, humidity... It was actually a very comfortable feeling inside the hut.
