    I liked the audio stations best. The whole museum gives you a good feeling of how Iceland came to be. And everything is also in English.

    Very expensive for a museum. €16 per person is not worth it

    The place to come for Icelandic History 101. I recommend coming here, then walking 10ish minutes to the settlement exhibition, where you'll see an excavated Icelandic farm house.

    I love the cafe at this place but if you are a traveller you must look at the museum to get familiar with our weird Icelandic culture.

    Экспозиции небольшие, но ёмкие и интересные, куча интерактивных досок и гидов, очень тихо
