  • A good stop for about an hour if you have children. Interesting information and a chance to see the Viking ship replica in person is worthwhile. I recommend tying this in with a visit to the bridge across continents and the blue lagoon to make a full day in the region.
  • Very cool museum featuring the Islendingur ship. And there's an admission plus buffet breakfast option! Which was quite tasty.
  • A great stop for all ages. The museum is decently equipped for its size and the best part is that you can access the ship and try out all the viking garb and weapons. For all maritime lovers its one not to be missed.
  • A good stop on you way to/from the airport if you're renting a car. Nice history, good place to burn 45 min out of the weather.
  • The viking ship inside is awesome! You get to walk into it, or eat below it if you choose to eat at the museum. I wish there were more exhibits to see.
