Vikin Maritime Museum - Review
There is no separating Iceland’s identity from its maritime heritage. Caught between two oceans, the island’s people depended for a long time on the sea to provide them with food and raw materials. This museum in Reykjavik’s harbour is thus dedicated mainly to the fishing heritage of these peoples. It focuses on how fish farming has evolved over the centuries, particularly in the 20th century. Other main exhibits focus on the history of sailing. Another major exhibit though focuses on the rescue vehicle Odinn, which houses an exhibit on the cod wars between the 1950s and 1970s. Check the museum website for details on upcoming events and also for their Christmas Market.

Vikin Maritime Museum, Reykjavik Reviews
Take Your Time, this place is fabulous. There is a lot to look at and read. But there is also interactive stations to listen to and videos playing on the walls.
Interesting museum to learn about the history of Iceland's fishery industry. We spend nearly 2 hours there! Good place for kids as well.
Worth stopping by. Very informative and interesting. Children won't get bored.
Visit the museum and get a tour. The exhibit on the cod wars is great. If you can get a tour of the coast guard vessel, that's also pretty cool.
It was interesting. If you're into maritime type stuff. Clean toilets when I went. Hot as hell inside.
