Reviewed November 16, 2012

This museum is worth a visit. Just a small place but interesting if you like to learn about the place that you are visiting.

“Museum +”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

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.

“So much interesting history!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

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.

“Good background for your visit”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

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.
