klausturhaust2012We are closed Tuesday 16th September because of a funeral, both the museum and café. Notice that the sheep gathering in Fljotsdalur Valley which was supposed to take place on Saturday 20th has been rescheduled, due to the eruption, and will be on Wednesday 17th September around noon.
