National Museum of Iceland
Culture fans: This should be your first stop in Reykjavik. Covering 1,200 years of history, the National Museum traces Iceland's journey from settlement to modern day. Don’t miss the permanent exhibition, “Making of a Nation,” that explores the country's heritage. It begins with a ship full of medieval settlers and ends with the image of a modern airport, neatly illustrating Iceland's evolution from a remote outpost to an island connected to the rest of the world.
