  Heimey Natural History Museum
by superbad

If you go to Heimey (and you should), you have to go here. It is a very small (like two room) museum. One room contains some stuffed display cases showing Icelandic wildlife in sort of a representation of the food chain. ("The badger eats the puffin, the muskrat eats the badger...") The other room has some tanks with live fish found in the waters off Iceland. And these are some ugly fish.

I think it's located in the library, if memory serves correctly.
