    Films of an active volcano and northern lights are great. Ice cave is fun to explore and there are wonderfully informative exhibitions about glaciers and the flora and fauna of Iceland. We were lucky to be just ahead of the tour buses, so we had easy access to all the attractions.

    Architecturally an amazing building! Both inside and out Harpa looks so different to any other concert hall. At night it looks beautiful.

    We enjoyed the special architecture of the Church.
    Inside was even a concert of a Hungarian Chor. Unforgetable!

    This museum that is within walking distance from downtown Reykjavik was a great experience. They've done a good job presenting the history and geology of Iceland.

    Small but a great way to learn about the aurora. The explanation of the science is easy to understand. Info re: photography was very helpful.

    Very interesting museum, love the fact that the museum was created around the long house remains. Well done displays and a nice gift shop.

    Walked to the Sun Voyager at the 'golden hour' just for photos of this unique structure. Very popular site and photogenic.

    Great 18th and 19th restored and reproduced village. Gives a great taste of life 200 years ago in Iceland. Tour guides were great. They were very informed and educational.

    Definitely worth a visit even just to window shop but plenty of bars cafes and restaurants to visit. Highly popular with tourists.

    We were two daughters ages 12 and 14 and my husband and me. It was inexpensive for a family of 4. We spent two hours there. You get bracelets you have to scan to enter and leave. There are handicapped/family/gender neutral changing rooms with a key. There were many pools and hot pots of different temperatures. I wish we could have gone a second time!

    We tried to visit the lighthouse but the roads into it were closed. We took some pictures and watched birds in the area but the best part was a little hot pool to soak your feet. A passerby told us about it so we went and used the little hot pot. It was cold outside (in July) but the water felt great on our tired feet. I'd love more time to explore that area.

    We used our Reykjavik City passes to catch the ferry to Videy. It is very quiet and relaxing there. Just nature, some lovely old buildings and Yoko Ono's Peace Tower to see. Coffee and food available in that big house you see in the photo, or take a picnic and explore the island. Plenty of return ferries to choose from. Not recommended as disabled access friendly - steep climb up the hillside when you get there.

    Great place to visit, a nostalgia trip. Crowded if a few of you go together. Knowledgeable and friendly owner. Recommended.

    I found this museum to be so cute… it was a wealth of information I learned about penises of all sizes from all mammals it was really interesting. If you have some free time it’s a cute enjoyable activity gets you out of the cold and enjoy some penis waffles for breakfast…

    The Reykjavik Maritime Museum is a really fantastic museum, and beautifully laid out. There was a genuinely sense of how deeply intwined both the economy and daily life in Reykjavik has been with fishing and seafaring. The curation of the exhibition is fantastic. There is also free coffee for patrons and lockers to store your warm outerwear. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that a couple of the interactive exhibits didn't seem to be working when we visited but it is absolutely worth a visit!
