About these ratings

This interactive museum tells the history of Iceland, beginning with its pagan rituals 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. 

Most recent travelers praise this museum's detailed look into Iceland's past. Some also recommend stopping by the museum's in-house restaurant and gift shop. Admission is 1500 ISK and guided tours are available for the same additional price. From May to mid-September, the museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; from mid-September to April, it's open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You'll find the museum in downtown Reykjavik near the University of Iceland.
