Small and very genre specific museum - as suggested in the name! Well presented and for those with an interest in music worth a short trip.

A small in size, but highly enjoyable punk history of Icelandic bands, and overseas touring bands - artifacts, posters and more

If you don't like small places, I would NOT recommend. It is an old water closet, there are headphones to hear music in the urinals. The guy who runs it is really interesting. It's something very different. I enjoyed learning about Icelandic punk.

It’s definitely different, a very small tribute museum in a converted toilet . It filled 30 mins ! And got us out of cold .

must be the worlds smallest museum - really interesting and looking at how the punk scene started in Iceland and some of the key people from that time.. worth a visit.

This was an unexpected museum to come across. It's in a former underground toilet!! Entrance fee means you will want to spend a bit of time in here but it goes to the upkeep so i didn't mind too much.

Stumbled onto this by accident. It's downstairs in a converted public toilet - with the toilets still in it. It's basically the story of Icelandic punk posted onto the walls of the cubicles and entrance. There is some video it's but pretty poor and nothing...More

This was a great little museum on the history of punk music in Iceland. Its also a reminder that regardless of cultures, deep down we are all the same.
