Interesting museum depicting the history of Iceland. Museum is accessible and well laid out. Two floors of artifacts and displays laid out in chronological order. Nice variety of artifacts in well marked displays. All signs and information in English.

Great spot to visit. I'm sure you could spend a lot of time here. We only stayed for a short time, but we really enjoyed what we saw while we were there. Great spot to hide form the wind and cold too!

A rainy day in Reykjavik had us wondering what to do, when we came across the museum only a short walk from our accommodation in a crazy wind storm. We were just looking for something indoors although pleasantly surprised. The museum is set out well with really interesting artefacts and information. There are also some interactive areas perfect for children. Worth a visit especially if planning to drive the ring road and find out more about Iceland.

There are some very interesting parts of the museum-- most of those were the audio/video discussions. We listened to all of those in full. Somehow, this museum not as compelling as others we've seen. Artifacts are OK... the religious ones were particularly impressive. We found the census data fascinating but not much discussion of the lengthy process to regain independence. Overall, the layout was good and generally informative.

The museum is quite informative about the history of Iceland, a must visit if you wish to learn about Iceland history, early settlers and how things changes from then on...
It was a nice experience...
And it won't take much of your time, 2-3 hrs will suffice.
Also it has a nice cafe.
