The National Museum of Iceland

National Museum of IcelandIn 2004 the National Museum of Iceland stood at a crossroad. The museum reopened its doors after extensive refurbishment and a modernised museum now offers a wide variety of services to its guests. The museum holdes a new, dynamic exhibition that fulfil all the modern standards required of such an establishment, housing the nation´s treasures.
The role of the museum is to increase and relay knowledge of Icelandic cultural heritage, from the nation´s earliest settlement through to the modern day.

National Museum of IcelandAt the National Museum the present meets the past. It is healthy for the Icelandic people to ask who they are, where they are going and what they want to represent. What can they learn from past generations?

The National Museum displays objects that provide insight into Icelandic cultural history - displays that encourage visitors to dwell on the past, present and future. The museum aims to nurture knowlede and innovation while maintaining a wide perspective and sense of community.
