See the fissure in the land where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are being forced apart by underground pressure and finish your tour with an optional visit to the Blue Lagoon (additional fees apply). Round-trip private transportation from your accommodation in Reykjavik is included.

The Duushus museum is a combination of art gallery, environmental centre, museum, and historic site all rolled into one. The many rooms, however, are not clearly marked and a lot of the information is only in Icelandic. An enormous collection of wooden ship models, some rotating local art, a huge largely unmarked upstairs room with a vast collection of materials tracing the Danish roots of the area and the various societies and individuals involved. Plus a nice little exhibit on the WW2 and subsequent US occupation of the area during the cold war. And a beautiful attic which catches the sunlight in August, also largely unmarked, and a working wagon hoist from when the building was a coastal warehouse. Next to impossible to figure out how to get from one place to another, but well worth a visit and a wander.

The museum is literally next store to the Hotel Duus. It is quite expansive documenting the fishing industry and development of the area. The upper level displays furnishings of the early settlers. The museum expands into geological and wildlife area. Low cost to enter(maybe 10 krona). And we’ll worth the price.

This is a very impressive museum containing over a hundred model fishing boats all created by one person. I was awed by the quantity and quality of the models presented. If you are lucky you will meet a very well informed docent who will share her vast knowledge with you. Incredible and only 6 minutes from the airport.

Awesome pictures of everyday life of townspeople. Which people in Reykjanesbæ took and sent in a photo competition.
