Why locals love it

The museum is here to increase and relay knowledge of Icelandic cultural heritage, from the nation´s earliest settlement through to the modern day. Lots of reading material and the interactive is quite well made.

Why you should visit it

It's a good way to learn a bit about the country you are visiting. It gives a good summary of the country and the whole area is quite easy to navigate. Don't let the exterior look fool you, as it is quite nice inside.

Special tip

The "hands on" area will keep the kids occupied for a while.

This museum is a standard for Icelandic history. Of course there some things that are missing, I am studying history and have noticed this numerous of times, but it really sums up the short history of the Icelandic nation from around the year of 870 (+2/-2 years).
