Viking Museum, Iceland

Víkingaheimar - Viking Museum, Iceland

Vikingworld is located at the seaside in the town of Reykjanesbær with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. Vikingworld is a five exhibition museum along with a settlement zoo, a playground and an outdoor classroom.

The frame around the Icelander, the exhibition hall itself, was designed by the award winning architect Guðmundur Jónsson. Its modern architecture highlights the beauty of the viking ship the Icelander (Íslendingur). Visitors can look at the ship from all sides and they can even go on board and let the mind take them to explore lands across the sea while they stand on deck of the Icelander.

The museum, which opened in 2009, offers five different exhibitions which are all connected to the viking age in one way or the other. They offer a unique opportunity to learn about the history and lifestyle of the Vikings of the North Atlantic a thousand years ago.
I love the soft curved lines of the boat seen through the window. Lovely icy tones too.
