Great way to learn the history of Iceland. You get an audio guided tour of approx 35mins and walk around various exhibitions which explains the history of the earliest settlers. Very informative but a bit short for the price. They do have student discounts so carry your student card. They have a very cool photo area where you can wear different Viking props and take photos. There is a cafe on site as well. The young lady who was at the reception/payment area was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Great little museum that takes 30-45 minutes to see. Includes an audio commentary that describes the scenes. Very life like wax figures. Worth the relatively low price of admission.
