If you're doing a stopover and staying in the town of Keflavik, this is a nice walk from the town core with beautiful scenery. Unlike everything in Iceland (including $5 for a small bottle of Fanta), the admission price wasn't too expensive. Interesting enough exhibits...More

We went here because the description intrigued us and according to guide book, we thought it was free. It is not free. Was it worth the admission price...maybe. I did learn a lot about the Iceland fishing industry.

We stayed close to the Museum. It gives a nice view of the local historical information and has handbags made from recycled material. Overall it is an interesting place worth a visit
