National Museum of Iceland
National Museum of Iceland (Suðurgata 41, 101 Reykjavík) – this museum’s goal is to provide insight into the history of the Icelandic nation — from the (Viking) Settlement to the present day. The exhibition includes about 2,000 objects, dating from the Settlement Age to the present, as well as about 1,000 photographs from the 20th century.
