Brydebúð in Vík is Myrdalur's culture center. This is an ideal stop for tourists, especially if there is little to see because of our special "Myrdalanian" rain and fog, although that can be an interesting sight too.

Brydebúð's main policy is to make the history and culture of the Vik area more visible by having various exhibitions. This is to maintain a cultural tourism in Myrdalur.
