  • Loved this place. Kinda hidden away in the library but really interesting exhibition on Iceland's earlier eras. Also a giftshop with really cool posters!
  • There is a free exhibition outside, if you go down the stairs, but the main exhibition has to be paid for (1000kr). We went for the stairs option that this much cheaper.
