My husband and I grabbed a bus because we were staying on the opposite side of town. The museum was very interesting with lots of history of Iceland. There were artifacts, clothing, furniture, boats, etc that you could read about and explore. The ticket included admission into the Culture House as well. There was a free locker to use to store your coat and other items.

This is standard museum stuff. We went because we had the city pass. Probably not work going if you don't have the city pass. The bottom floor is a really expensive gift shop and photos. The upper floor had more what I expected, but also a lot of filler fluff. The most memorable is the delicacy and craftsmanship on the old jewelry.

Dear guest! Thank you very much for your feedback. We are happy you liked your visit. As of nov. 2019 we will be offering new and exciting private guided tours at the museum (30 – 40 min.), ideal for families and groups. Welcome back when visiting Reykjavik! Regards, Adalsteinn

I was expecting a lot more. There was no real flow to it. What there was was quite underwhelming and disjointed.

Lovely modern museum, full of interactive exhibits. If you want to get a sense of Iceland's past, this is the place to visit! You also get free tickets to 'The Culture House' museum in the centre of Reykjavik as part of the entry ticket, though sadly we did not have time to visit. Next time. Well certainly be back!

This is an excellent museum. Hundreds of artifacts and fabulous presentation of their history. Three floors, easy to navigate. The basement had a lovely cafe for coffee and a treat. Food was fresh and very tasty.

In some ways Iceland is so old but is a very young independent nation. We enjoyed the history but it was a bit heavy on the religious aspects. They have free lockers and worth buying a Reykjavík card if you are doing a few things. I got half price entry with my Australian student card.

My wife is more of the history buff and usually I finish much earlier in museums like this, but here 2 and 1/2 hours flew by. Many diffrerent kinds of artifacts presented in an easy to grasp, engaging manner. Lots of options for brief videos and narratives to expand on the information presented. Really helps you understand this fascinating country much better.

Our favourite part was seeing how families lived and share room/shelter. Four beds cramped in together for multiple families. They also have an area for children to interact with some replicas/artifacts. A great way to learn some history for more than just adults.

Loads to see here at the museum, jam packed with artefacts and tells the history of Iceland from first settlers through to modern day. All very professionally laid out, but I did get confused about the right order to follow as the numbered panels seemed to jump about.
