I did like my visit to the museum, but I was a bit dissapointed by the amount of time spent there. I did read the information boards, or I was trying to do that…. as the sound from the other room was interfering with my concentration level to read. The first room did have some good information and triggers to learn more, but that is basically it… the other rooms do only have a some parts to watch or experience, but one does not spent much time there. So a nice start, but too little for me and the loud music did spoil my museum experience. Still giving this museum 3 out of 5 stars, as I know I am critical and do like people to go there and absorb some information.

Informative show, for me a bit to much reading material. But still easily acceseble. The vr part of the show is really cool and fun

On our way from Akureyri to Reykjavík we decided to check out this museum our friends had been raving about. Thanks to the travel restrictions/covid-19 we got tickets at the entrance without having to preorder. The way the show is set up is thoroughly planned and thought-out so you get more and more drawn-in as you move between the three main rooms. Really nicely done. And the VR is just amazing. It is such a cool way to bring history to life and give you a better understanding of the circumstances at the time of the battle. We loved it and will be revisiting next time we go to Sauðárkrókur. Thank you for an amazing experience.

We had a great time. The exhibition is very professional, a mixture of reading material, 3D and something to try out and touch. Very good service both on the exhibition and on the restaurant. We do want to come again.
