Housed in the same building as the city library, this is a seriously good museum. With over 5 million photographs from the 1870s to the present day, the museum has been doing a fantastic job keeping alive the culture of photography in Iceland, and promoting the local talent. A good portion of the collection is focused on the Reykjavik and the surrounding area. The lighting and presentation is simple, but striking and elegant. The museum shop is worth checking out. When you come down from the top floor try taking the stairs which are adorned with vintage black and white photos. Check the museum website for details on upcoming events. This has been called one of the best free museums of Europe.
