This past July was very lively at the Húsavík Whale Museum and the guests that visited the museum came from all corners of the world. The total number of guests was 11.524 which is substantially more than in the same month last year. Never before has the museum been visited by as many guests as this past July. The new blue-whale exhibition has been a great success and has caught the eye of our guests along with our other exhibitions. Most of our guests came from Germany (19%), USA (9%) and France (9%).
The winters in the north are not known for massive tourism which gives the museum staff space for important updates on exhibitions,
