    It was not expensive but not so fun. It was more of an exhibition than a museum. It consisted of wax models which you viewed while you listened to the recorded tales of the Vikings of Iceland in headphones.

    Absolutely a great place for anyone interested in Brennunjálssaga. A museum dedicated to one of the best book ever written. Don't miss it.

    Neat experience! The entire building is a sort of museum / community center with different things going on, including a Viking hall. The main attraction was the Njal Saga exhibit, which is a great introduction into Icelandic sagas, Icelandic history of the time and then a breakdown of this specific saga. I was dubious but am so glad we stopped here!

    Lovely exhibition in three languages (Icelandic, English and German). When in the neighborhood definetely a recommendation.

    What a waste of money. Don't waste your time and money here. It was such a disappointment. A lot of it is not even in English.

    Awesome look back into the history of Iceland. Good food as well in the banquet hall.
