A small interesting place that tells about rock’n roll era, a small find of happiness to those who love the noise and lovely sound bass and guitars and drums.

I walked to the museum from keflavik hotel. I have gained much more knowledge about Iceland's music industry. The only person I recognized was Bjork. Lots of videos to watch and music to listen to. It's not very expensive either.
