  • Alone of the walk to the old town is recommended. The Museum is small but lovingly furnished. Especially for children, there are here great stations, as E.g. costumes adult.

  • as others have said, its quite small for the price, not worth the walk and the price but with the akureryi card it could be ok...take the free bus
  • Worth to visit. Takes probably 1 hour.
  • Always good to learn about history.
  • Quite small considering the entry price. The exposition is nice though, with almost everything both in Islandic and English
  • Interesting Museum. Exhibition of old maps and then pretty informative with regard to the city's history. Many photos and designed in a very unusual way. It is a much illustrative material around - which makes bit of getting to clear atmosphere! Am glad that I have found here!

Where to stay in Akureyri

For easy access to Akureyri's most popular attractions, restaurants, and stores, consider staying in the lively waterfront area. This area features a number of hotels and hostels within walking distance of the city's museums, galleries, and sites. Cost-conscious visitors should explore one of the more inland guesthouses. Some double as student housing but are generally not raucous. Vacation apartments provide a good base for those planning a longer stay in the northerly metropolis and many are centrally located. To make the most of the scenic countryside surrounding the city, opt for a campsite or cottage in the outskirts.
