We happened across this museum on our first day in Reykjavík and my boyfriend being a punk fan was instantly intrigued by the music coming up the stairs. We decided to go down a have a look and were..... more »
JUST GO. No more questions. OK I'm adding this part after reading some other reviews. Yes it's small and you can go through there quickly. But this museum symbolizes punk its underground, it's in a toilet and it is a stone's throw of the Parliament building, the man, government. You can't talk to a book about The Sex Pistols and I talk to the guy who is running the museum for a 1/2 hour and left enthused and invigorated about listening to old and new punk. There is a human element to this that is not found in a book
Buy a book about punk rock and learn more about the history of punk rock than from this claustrophobic so-called museum. A cute little distraction that throws in tidbits about a trend that brings nostalgia to a few rockers. Still, a slight, "why not" diversion to do because the owner obviously worked diligently to plaster the walls to pass on his love for punk, affording him the leisure to listen to punk music all day long.
