Wonderful exhibitions provide a wealth of insight into the history and culture of Iceland. I am so glad it was one of the first places that we stopped. So nice to have a bit more appreciation for the country's heritage before exploring the countryside.

This museum is totally worth your time for a very unique collection of early Icelandic manuscripts. It is centrally located and the admission fee is part of the National Museum ticket. You will probably need one hour to see everything.

If you're interested in the history of Iceland, this is a nice museum. Take the time to read all the notes, there are many! $20 ticket gets you into the National Museum too.

Such an eclectic collection of interesting art. The museum was designed based on perspective rather than chronologically or genre. Well worth a visit and it's included with the City Card. We enjoyed the cafe as well.
