Easy to spot from the main road as the building is glass and the viking ship easy to see. We were the only visitors at the time and were made so welcome. The gentleman explained the layout of the museum and answered our questions easily as he is friends with the man who built the ship. We were offered free coffee as we walked around the museum which was a nice touch as we had just come from the Blue Lagoon where the wind had frozen us to pieces.
The ship is the céntral piece of the museum and is so impressive. You are allowed to stand on board and the way the building is designed allows you to look out to sea and imagine life on board one of these battle ships. The museum to the side and information around the ship provides lots of detail for the visitor.
It cost us the equivalent of £10 to get in for two adults as the children were free - ages 13 and 9. The short videos on the macs around the ship kept the children interested and informed.
All in all a great ship , fantastic building and great value for money for an hour or more. We recommend this as a place to visit when in Iceland.
