Small museum with guided audio tour which takes about 40 mins. Tells some interesting stories about early settelers to Iceland. Worth a visit.

Unless you have small children with you avoid it. It consists of mannequins acting out a pivotal scene from Icelandic history. Spend the time at the Reykjavik Art Museum or National Gallery of Iceland instead.

i took the audio tour which explains Iceland's history and people. The exhbits were realistic and interesting. It's open every day from 10-6pm. It's worth a visit.

A guided tour accompanies the visitor through perhaps 14 scenes with limited narration and gives some impression of the early period of Iceland with some hint of the violence. The content is somewhat educational, but unimpressive.

Like a lot we saw in Iceland, it was interesting but expensive. Lots of new history to learn and presented in an easy to follow format. It could use a few seats along the way.

We went here with our two young children who thoroughly enjoyed the realistic depictions of the Sagas, and Icelandic history. Our son found it helpful for his home school history project. We also enjoyed lunch in the atmospheric restaurant

It was our fault for misreading the sign - when it said it was the closest you could get to a real viking we were expecting some real artefacts, just to clarify no there's no artefacts lol. What there is is a great audio stories...More

This was OK. It gave a good account of Icelandic history - most of which we had heard on the trips we had taken. The static displays were fine - not at all high tech but showed the clothing etc. Samll problem was that mp3...More

I enjoyed coming to this museum, figure about $20 US. The wax figures were well done, the costumes were intricate, the audio setup was great. All in all, I enjoyed the trek thru here. Afterwards, you can dress up as a viking and shoot a...More

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
