It is appropriate for the Icelandic Emigration Center to be located in Hofsós, as the first white settler in America, Thorfinnur Karlsefni, came from the area near Hofsós. It is believed that Karlsefni may have set out to sea from this area when he sailed to America, eventually landing in Vinland (now Newfoundland). He and his wife Guðríður Thorbjarnardóttir established a home in Vinland between the years 1004 and 1006 during which time they had a son, Snorri Thorfinnsson, who was the first European to be born of immigrant parents in North America. After they returned to Iceland they settled at Glaumbær, nearby Hofsós.

Samgönguminjasafnið í Stóragerði var opnað formlega þann 26. júní 2004 af Ársæli Guðmundssyni þáverandi sveitastjóra Skagafjarðar. Safnið var þá 600fm salur með lítilli gestamóttöku. Á nokkrum árum var umfangið á safninu orðið það mikið að stækka þurfti salinn um 800fm ásamt gestamóttökunni, byrjað var á því haustið 2010 og var full klárað fyrir sumarið 2013. í dag eru 97 tæki til sýnis í salnum og má þar nefna bíla, rútu, mótorhjól, sleða, búvélar, flugþyt og ekki má gleyma öllu því smádóti sem tengist samgöngusögu Íslendinga. Fyrir utan safnið og í kringum það má svo áætla að séu í kringum 250-300 bílar og tæki í misgóðu ásigkomulagi sem flestum gestum okkar þykir ótrúlega gaman að skoða. Verkstæði safnsins stendur sunnan við safnið og er öll uppgerð á bílum og tækjum unnin þar.
