National Museum

Iceland’s National Museum, located in the city of Reykjavik, houses varied and interesting collections of artwork and historical relics. Until the museum was established in 1863, many of the items currently in the National Museum were housed in Danish museums. It underwent a major renovation in 2004, bringing it up to modern standards. The largest photography collection in the country is found there, as well as over 2,000 artefacts that illustrate the history of Iceland. The exhibits include a pagan burial site, swords and other medieval weapons, traditional Icelandic costumes, along with modern artwork.

  • A permanent National Museum exhibition, “Making of a Nation- Heritage and History in Iceland”, provides a comprehensive view of the island’s and Reykjavik’s history from the 9th century up to the present.
  • Kids will have loads of fun at the children’s playrooms, where they can dress up as Vikings and engage with interactive exhibits.
  • The National Museum café is popular among Reykjavik’s residents and visitors alike. It is next to the museum gift shop; so you can enjoy Icelandic refreshments, and then pick up some souvenirs.

The National Museum is located in Reykjavik, at Suourgata 41. There is bus service from many points in the city. Because there is no subway or train system in the city, bus routes and schedules are plentiful and efficient. If you prefer a faster mode of transport or if the weather is uncooperative, there are several taxi companies operating throughout the city. The National Museum’s operating days of the week and hours vary, so be sure to check ahead of time. Guided tours are available but must be booked in advance.
