The Saga Museum has a lot to offer if you take it for what it is. First, what it is NOT is a museum. It does not house collections of artifacts, art, or antiquities. If you go with the expectation of seeing vast displays of Icelandic artifacts, you will be (justifiably) disappointed. This is their fault-- "museum" is a poor choice of names. The Saga Museum is a visual story, told with very elaborate and realistic wax figures and an audio tour to guide you past them. You could walk around it in 5 minutes as a previous reviewer mentioned, but you wouldn't hear the stories behind the figures. The whole experience takes maybe 35 minutes, and costs (as of this writing) about $11USD for adults and $6 for children. If you're unfamiliar with the Sagas, this is fun introduction to Iceland's history.
