Culture House Museum
Reykjavík’s Culture House Museum brings a little bit of six of Iceland’s leading cultural institutions into the same beautiful building (designed by Danish architect Johannes Magdahl Nielsen). It’s the perfect spot to get an introduction to Icelandic culture, people, history, and art. The museum comprises four and a half floors, each of which touch on different aspects of viewing the world—from introspective reflection, to daily life and commercialism, to the actual ground beneath your feet—and presents the ways different people experience these views.
