One of the best museums we have ever been to. Fascinating and really well arranged. We spent more time here than in the art galleries and enjoyed all the fascinating displays which were informative and stimulating.

One rainy day we decided to visit some museums and Reykjavik City Museum was out first port of call because of its great reviews.
Just a short walk from the main highstreet, it was easy to find and I'm so glad we went!
We spent a good few hours learning about Iceland's interesting history, and it felt good to know more about the country we were visiting.
They have so much to see there you can easily spend a whole afternoon mooching around, I'd definitely allocate at least 2 hours so you can actually read and see everything they have on display.
Both me and my boyfriend really enjoyed doing something a bit educational, and after visiting I really had learnt so much - definitely visit if you get the chance.

Gives you a bit of an understanding as to how and why Reykjavic has evolved the way it has. The exibits are well layed out and give you sufficient details without over whelming you with data.

Well, Reykjavick and Iceland is certainly off the beaten path and a visit to the City museum was a great learning experience.
