Museums Around Iceland

1. Borgarnes Settlement Centre

The museum is in two halves and its entry price includes audio guides. Upstairs, Iceland’s settlement is covered in detail, from a pneumatic longship prow to impressions of how the islands looked then with more trees and no sheep. Downstairs, Egil’s Saga is brought to life with depictions of key scenes from this violent tale (for further details see Borgarnes Settlement Centre).
