Hvammstangi, Iceland: Icelandic Seal Center

Care for a crash course on seals in Iceland? This is the place.

The Icelandic Seal Center is a nonprofit organization that helps seals in the Northwest Iceland area. There's a relatively short film about seals, as well as a couple of rooms of exhibits and the mandatory gift shop. Proceeds from the museum go to the organization's work, which seems like a good cause.

There's a restaurant above the museum, and tour buses apparently stop there on their way through the area. We gained free admission that way (at least, sort of free as the tour company no doubt paid something). The town of Havammstangi is small (580 people) but rather charming thanks to a nice harbor.
