About these ratings

This interactive museum tells tells the history of Iceland, beginning with a pagan burial and ending with contemporary fashion. Along the way, you'll "meet" a medieval chief and a 14th-century nun, among others, and you can hear about their life experiences via a one-way telephone conversation. One TripAdvisor user says, "Take the time to listen to these as you learn a bit from a persons perspective."

Most recent travelers give this museum much praise -- some also recommend stopping by its in-house restaurant and gift shop. Admission is 1000 ISK or about $5.50 USD. In the summer, the museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; in the winter, it's open for abbreviated hours and closed on Mondays. For more information, visit the official website
