Unfortunately we woke up late again today! That means no trip to the Perlan Dome or stroll to the geothermal park (maybe another day?). Also, it’s raining again, so that means our Northern Lights tour for tonight was postponed til tomorrow night.
Rainy days mean museums, so we decided to check out the National Museum of Iceland, which is all about Icelandic history from the time of Nordic settlers to the present.
– admission is kr 1200 for adults
– open til 5pm during off-season
– has 2 floors of exhibits, the bottom floor is roughly 870AD – 1400AD (from early Settlers to Nordic Vikings, Christianity, and Danish rule), and the top floor is 1400AD – present (Lutherans, Icelandic independence).
– we were only there for a little over 2hrs, and felt rushed, but it was doable. Ideally I’d recommend 3-4hrs to really see all the exhibits.
