National Museum of Iceland

Highly recommended
The National Museum of Iceland features reconstructed settings and original presentations (such as a conveyor belt with a parade of 20C objects) recounting the country's history as well as its everyday life since its settlement circa 800. A dense and fascinating display (on 2 floors).
