A visit to the punk museum, in the old toilets of Reykjavik. Lots of history to read and cool atmosphere but a little over priced.

This is a small and very specialized exhibit but it is obviously the result of thorough and passionate research, and the presentation -- punk collage style art in a former public toilet-- is perfect. If punk music and culture interest you, take an hour and...More

It is underground in a former public bathroom. Honestly, I would say, come here only if you have nothing else to do or by chance is passing thru. Can't really say if it is worth the admission price since there is not much memorabilia there....More

My attention was caught by the feint sound of punk music which I traced to this disused public convenience in the heart of Reykjavik. What the heck? The entrance is down a few steps, littered with graffiti and punk memorabilia. As you approach you are...More
