We really enjoyed our visit to this museum. It is very well laid out; just enough information to be interesting but not overwhelming. We learned a lot about Icelandic history.

The exhibition is really one main underground room with the excavated longhouse in the centre. On the outside are artefacts and digital displays to provide the history. Interesting and impressive presentation but very limited and expensive.
