It is safe to say that many who visit the small village of Bildudalur, get butterflies in their stomach and even their toes when they visit the musical museum "Melodiur Minninganna" (Melodies of Memories), founded by Mr. Jon Kr. Olafsson a former Icelandic pop-star from the 60´s and 70´s..
The Museum opened on 17th of June, 2000, on the Icelandic national day. The museum portrays a part of the musical history of Iceland . The museum is dedicated to many of the wonderful artists and musicians that Mr. Olafsson knew and worked with throughout his career.
The museum is mostly based on a display of a record collection on the walls of the museum and other artifacts from this period, which gives the look and feel of the golden age of Icelandic early pop culture.
