The Skógar Folk Museum consists of a church, several farm houses from different periods in Icelandic history, and a modern building with exhibits.
The exhibit has countless antiquities and artifacts of everyday life in a farming and fishing society over several centuries, collected over more than 5 decades by the Owner/Curator Ţordur Tomasson (see photographs below). Among the antiquities is a brass handle said to have come from that box of gold when someone found it but could not hold on to the box itself as it fell back into the falls.

While he was playing "Home on the Range", a local TV crew was filming it too. He had made an important discovery of an ancient Amulet. [cjs]
