You start the self-guided your with a headset that you don’t have to fuss with. It automatically adjusts to each exhibit. The scenes are well done. There is scattered seating if you need to sit a bit. At the end there is a room with...More

My daughter and I visited this museum during our stay in Reykjavik. It is a wax museum type experience with an audio guide. It took about a 30 minutes to go through the entire museum but was very informational about the Icelandic Sagas. It's a...More

This museum tells the story of some major moments in Icelandic history through silicone statues a la Madame Tussaud's. The figures are incredibly lifelike and that did creep me out a little bit. There is an audio guide that takes you through the different scenes....More

Fair! Informative audio and wax museum re early (Viking) history of Iceland. Lasts only 35 minutes, however, and is overpriced. Definitely can miss this unless you need something to fill short block of time

The Museum is very well run with information in different languages via headset. You finish the visit with a very good understanding of Iceland and it’s early settlers. There is an opportunity for you to dress up as vikings too.

In this museum you take an audio tour and visit different stations with realistic life sized depictions. It is super cool and interesting and perfect if you have a rainy day in Reykjavík (which shouldn’t be that hard.)
