The number of visitors in the Húsavík Whale Museum were close to 10 thousand in July. That’s an increase from 2018 and a little bit more than in the same month in 2017. Germans, Americans and French are the most frequent visitors.
This year’s increase of visitors to the museum in July is a very positive and even surprising news. In the aftermath of WOW Air’s collapse earlier this year, a number of forecasts assumed decreation of tourists in Iceland – especially outside the Reykjavík area. With that in mind, any news in the opposite direction is something to cheer about even though the visitor numbers of the Húsavík Whale Museum can’t be transferred to the overall numbers.
