Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
The article presents the results of a research on Icelandic museums and their specifics. The analysis is based on the traditional concept of 'land, nation and language,' which form the core of the Icelandic culture and national identity. The first section of the paper describes the definitional problems which occurred during the research. Then the methodology is explained, also taking into consideration the difficulties in examining Icelandic museums using standard tools and guidelines. The last section is devoted to the results of the research, presenting a few examples of different Icelandic museums and their approach to heritage through the prism of the abovementioned trinity.
