The technique looks multifaceted, but it generates scene as soon as you're there. We only ran crosswise the ferry. Be complete to walk a little problematic.

Museum full of artist information, nicely displayed, informative, and a good collection. The museum could surprise me with some gimmicks, such as the “records” with information while turning the tables. I discovered some new artists. For me personally, one hour was enough to spend there,...More

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.

As someone who loves Icelandic music I’m a bit biased. We spent a good while here. Loads of interesting info, and I came away with ideas for loads of new stuff to listen to on Spotify. The interactive bits were great, especially the mixing desk....More

I really didn’t know much about Icelandic rock besides Björk but I’m stranded in Keflavik and this was the only attraction within a walking distance. It may be a bit pricey but it’s a really fun museum, I spent well over two hours there, there’s...More

It would be too long of a walk, worth going to but do take a taxi. If you are staying in Keflavik then you could walk pretty much from anywhere in town.
