Built with Fish: History Lessons at the Museum of Hafnarfjörður (S01/E09)
How do you keep history fresh at a municipal history museum? How do you best serve your local audience while still offering something interesting for tourists? These are the challenges the Hafnarfjörður Museum is trying to solve. The museum is housed in seven historic buildings in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland. In this episode, museum director Björn Pétursson gives me a tour of the main building, Pakkhusið, and shares some of the museum’s recent successes and challenges. Music in this episode is by FÚNI.
