About Reykjavik Museum Of Photography, Reykjavik
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
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!
Cool photos, doesn't deserve the name "museum". It was an exhibit of one artist in one room.
Great museum about the rock history on Iceland, big guitar collection from important icelandic rock bands and exclusive collection of costumes and play instruments test area
I’m sorry, but to charge 1000 krona (10 USD) for entry to one room with no more than 20 photographs is disgraceful, even by Icelandic standards. The best photographs weren’t even inside, but immediately outside the museum doors. Doesn’t take more than 5 minutes to view the photograph collection. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra 1000 ISK on a nicer meal at one of Reykjavik’s many fantastic restaurants.
Fantastic exhibitions and a vast archive of books to browse - a treat if you're a fan of photography!
