Out of all the museums we visited in Iceland, this was one where our family had the most fun. Audioguides in English (which are included in the entry fee) were provided and made the exhibits come to life. The museum is divided into an upper and lower part. The upper part describes the settlement of Iceland in around 870 AD whilst the lower part narrates the life and times of a character called Egil (from one of the Icelandic Sagas) which are both entertaining and amusing even if a bit far-fetched.
The museum has a restaurant adjoining it, free parking outside and incredibly clean restrooms which even had candles burning.
