Where can I find Viking World in Iceland?

The facility is located in the town of Reykjanes, near Keflavik airport and The Iceland Museum of Rock n Roll.

The facility also includes exhibitions produced by The Smithsonian, titled Vikings: The Northern Saga. Interestingly, this museum explores the role in which Iceland played in the discovery of North America. It also explores the Norse settlements that turned Iceland into what it is today. The building itself is a fantastic example of modern architecture, based right by the famous Flaxaboi Bay in the town of Reykjanes, which can be easily accessed from Reykjavik. So, what are you waiting for? Make the most of your day off, and visit Viking World!
