Many of the city’s museums are free or very cheap. The 871 Settlement Museum costs 600 ISK (under $5 US) and is one of the best museums in Reykjavik. It’s centered around a 1,000-year-old excavated Viking longhouse and uses recovered artifacts and interactive exhibits to tell the story of Iceland’s early days. The Culture House Museum, which displays some of Iceland’s oldest manuscripts, is free on Wednesdays and 300 ISK (just over $2 US) every other day.
