Honestly I'd pass on this. It's expensive for what it is: a 30 minute guided audio tour with wax figures. Several guidebooks really talk this museum up, so our group went and we were all disappointed. The tone of the narration is very dry, considering...More

I think the answer to Icelandic fun lies in the great outdoors. The Saga Museum is not much to write home about.

Wouldn't go out of my way to see it. Can learn more about Vikiing history from bus drivers.\ or going to the National Museum. This is a self paced 30 minute audio tour. Not cery exciting.

Wonderfully, beautifully created sets and figures! The details will blow you away. There’s a mini documentary on how the museum was created and area to dress up and take pictures. The headset allows you to feel like you’re back in time along with the characters....More

Near the harbor, this small exhibit contains several small scenes with full scale characters, playing some important part of history, in chronological order. Take the time to read the signs and hear what is said in the audio-guide.

Audio headsets were great as you walked through the life size displays of major historical events in Iceland’s history. Learned a lot.

And what other museum lets you walk around with a beer while learning about their culture and history? A family run business, educating tourists about the sagas. If you don't know much about Iceland, this is a good place to start. I especially enjoyed that...More

This museum details the story of the Viking Settlements in Iceland spaning their arrival from Norway to their continued search of Vineland. An accompanying audio guide interprets each exhibit. Hey, you can evening dress as an early Viking!!

This is a family business and the video explains how they made the wax figures to depict key events in Icelandic history. The audio guide was informative but at times went off track. There was a bit of an odor in the museum itself. Nevertheless...More
