I worked there last winter and this place is a hidden diamond in the city. Most locals don't know about this place, they think it is some kind of an embassy, but this a museum with a café located in it. If you want to disappear for a couple of hours in Reykjavík and consume some of Iceland's unusual history, this is the right place!
