Reykjavik Museum Of Photography - Review
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.

Reykjavik Museum Of Photography, Reykjavik Reviews
Tucked in the same building as the public library, the museum is compact but charming. I didn't technically go into the museum itself because they were closing, but my friend and I checked out the gift shop and talked with the cute staff member about death metal. If I ever am back in Iceland, I definitely plan to go back!
The expositions were interesting when I went, but the museum is rather small which made me feel like I would need to see a bit more...
Very small museum - the main exhibit was slightly underwhelming (especially for the price), but I was pleasantly surprised by the archives available on interactive screens. They're well organised and cover a lot of different themes and periods of history, in a way that the other museums rarely could. Not sure if I'd recommend it unless you're a photographer or have a real interest in history, but if you are, it's worth a look!
Small but interesting exhibition. 1000kr. for the entry.
Cool photos, doesn't deserve the name "museum". It was an exhibit of one artist in one room.
