Things to do in Reykjavik - that may not be on tourist list

I'll be returning for the second time this year - I was there in the summer (loved it!), and will be returning in two weeks hoping to catch the Northern Lights. Last time enjoyed - The Golden Triangle, Snaefell Peninsula, Blue Lagoon, Puffin Tour, etc.

My husband and I would like like to do a few activities in the day, but not necessarily exhaust ourselves with lots of driving (like we did last time).

Can anyone please give me some ideas of places to visit nearby (we'll have a car), things to do, etc. that would be enjoyable in Nov/Dec - but may not be on the standard tourist list?

Thank you!

Visiting the city pools and the fish museum sound like great ideas! Thanks. Any more ideas?

well...they said they had a car ;o)

besides, who DOESN'T want to go there? It's a pretty great conversation starter at parties:

"Anyone ever been to a museum devoted entirely to the Phallus? Because I HAVE." Ha ha.
