This on the other hand brings museums up to date, showing clips from foreigners experiences with this amazing country and history of Iceland as a nation.
I love this place - such a unique museum with a terrific format for experiencing the music, sports, history, food, and other major aspects of Icelandic culture through very short films.

Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar) Reykjavik, Iceland 0.7 km away
#4 of 44 Museums in Reykjavik
Iceland has amazing museums and this one is an absolute jewel.
Inside the museum is also worth a visit, his sculptures are stories and weave in a little bit of Iceland myths with global myths, earth, spirituality and the eternal struggle of flesh and spirit.

The Icelandic Punk Museum Reykjavik, Iceland 0.1 km away
#5 of 44 Museums in Reykjavik
A great experience and really a flagship for other punk museums to follow worldwide.
So it was great to find this entertaining and informative museum about mainly the history of Icelandic punk and the UK bands that visited and played in Reykjavik.
National Museum of Iceland Reykjavik, Iceland 0.9 km away
#6 of 44 Museums in Reykjavik
I really like history and museums so I'm a little biased, but the exhibits are well laid out, really good explanations, it charts the history of Iceland from its beginning right through to modern times.
This museum is new and it provides one of the best series of exhibits I've seen, as good or better than many of the Smithsonian museums in our hometown, Washington, DC.

Viking World Keflavik, Iceland
#1 of 6 Museums in Keflavik
One of the coolest little museums we've ever found.
Throughout the museum is also information on Viking settlement and exploration and a concise (yet thorough) history of Iceland throughout the ages, as well as an exhibit of a Viking burial ship.

Reykjavik Maritime Museum Reykjavik, Iceland 1.0 km away

This and the Settlement Museum both owned and run by the city were the best museums I saw in country and together have great insight into recent and ancient history.

Saga Museum Reykjavik, Iceland 1.0 km away
#13 of 44 Museums in Reykjavik
Well made figures topping by far the waxed museums and a bit dark for the youngest visitors but dressed up and weaponized kids have fun
Situated down on the port, this great museum has a audio-guided exhibition of Iceland's chequered history, with extremely lifelike models [cast from real people - there is a fascinating video on the process in the...

Top Ten Favorite Museums
One of the most interesting museums I've been too.
Whales of Iceland Reykjavik, Iceland 1.1 km away
#16 of 44 Museums in Reykjavik
The museum is only five minutes walk from the harbour where the whale watching trips depart and is well worth a visit and has the advantage that the Northern Lights and Saga Museums are on the same street.
The museum was great: really interesting with lots of information, but spaced out and with amazing life-sized models of the wHales, dolphins and porpoises to bring the whole thing to life.

We visited in 2015 and enjoyed the informative museum, especially in the winter with the snow and cold weather.
Even though parts of this little museum were closed while we were there, the exhibits of the boats was really neat.

#1 of 3 Museums in Hveragerdi
... to end up at the museum--we stumbled in on accident--and ended up getting a personalized tour through Iceland's wild, tumultuous geological history, as well the history of the brand new and budding museum itself.
We wish you all the best with the museum and hope many travelers will come and stop in and talk with you to learn more about Iceland and your wonderful collection!
