If you want to learn about Iceland and their history, this is the stop for you. I probably spent a couple of hours going through everything. Learned a lot, and really enjoyed all the displays. Seemed like everything was pretty well covered from the Vikings to politics to religion.

Kids will love exploring the past in one of 3 rooms designed especially for them to explore, whether it be dressing up in medieval suits of armor or reviewing libraries of old. You can even sneak away and check out a few exhibits yourself while they are entertained!

The museum has a lot of great and interesting information about Iceland's history and heritage.

All coats and bags must be placed in lockers on the lower/basement level before you can see the exhibits, which was nice as we were able to walk more freely.

The layouts of the 3 floors though, was a bit confusing, not knowing where to start or end so we were just randomly walking around reading information. Some of the display cases were poorly lit.

The admission fee is 2000 ISK for adults, and free with the Reykjavik City Card. If it wasn't for the card, we would not have paid to see this.

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!
