From weird, repurposed tanks used to deliver milk, to giant snowmobile buses that look straight off the set of Dune, the Transport Museum at Ystafell has collected and preserved half a century´s worth of vehicles, and set it on display in a wonderfully remote location. Covering an array of automobilia, along with the cars themselves, there´s photographs and information to read about Iceland’s transportation history.
Born out of the mechanic Sverrir Ingólfsson´s love of cars and hatred of waste, after working for many years repairing the local vehicles, this is a collection of all the spare parts and cars he assembled over his life.
