The story of the Vikings and their impact on Iceland (& other parts of the world) is a really important one, but this museum can do a much better job. The audio guide gives no time between displays to read information or think about what...More

It wasn't what I had expected from a museum. You get headphones in your language to listen to a recording and then go to different depictions of Icelandic history. I gave it 3 stars because it was educational and the wax figures were well done....More

This place is really tiny and the admission fee felt like a rip off to us. The wax figures are ok but it's hard to relate some of them to the information in front of them. The audio tour was boring, mainly repeating what was...More

The actual tour with audio is okay as it gives some history on Iceland, but it is very brief, it can easily be completed around 30 minutes. The price for 2 x adults was expensive for the tour on offer.

Spent an hour doing the audio tour. Found this to be very educational and interesting. We particularly liked the costumes available to wear during the tour - not something we've seen before.

I can appreciate the wax figures and the hard work that went into making it, but to be honest, it was somewhat boring.

I know a lot of work has gone into create these displays to tell the origins of the Iceland settlers. However, I got bored listening to the audio and not having much room to maneuver in as all the stations are quite close together. My...More

Honestly I'd pass on this. It's expensive for what it is: a 30 minute guided audio tour with wax figures. Several guidebooks really talk this museum up, so our group went and we were all disappointed. The tone of the narration is very dry, considering...More

I think the answer to Icelandic fun lies in the great outdoors. The Saga Museum is not much to write home about.

Hello, I don't remember the exact price after conversion rates? I want to say about $20-25 a person. It was small, but one of the better museums I felt that I went to there. That and the Whale Museum. Most museums there... More
