The Maritime Museum Ósvör stands on the east side of Bolungarvik, down by the sea.
The museum contains a double 19th century fishing base, a salt hut, a fish drying area and a drying hut.
Among the pieces displayed, there is the rowboat Ölver that gives a good idea of the kind of ships that were used for fishing in that time. In the museum are also for display all kinds of fishing equipment and various tools that were used for fishing and fish production in the time of the fishing base.
The curator greets visitors wearing a skin suit that is similar to the one Icelandic sailors worn in that time and describes what is to see there.
