Lovely museum about Icelandic history. There was a nice display of sod houses and what they looked like. There was also an interesting exhibit with cars and other things such as radio and telephones.
Skogafoss is beautiful, but your visit is not complete without stopping be the museum. An immense amount of history and tradition is compiled into their collection, including some of the first Icelandic translations of the bible. The open-air portion of the museum is a ton of fun, with several turf-roof buildings available to walk inside and explore.
