Reykjavík Maritime Museum
A harbour museum exploring Iceland’s dramatic relationship with the sea.
The survival of a nation depended on generations of brave fishermen heading into the unknown. Over the centuries, methods of catching and working with fish transformed into a science that helped create a modern nation. Exhibitions and art facts bring our ocean history to life, from battling the waves to the ‘Cod Wars’ and beyond. Plus the chance to climb aboard the Óðinn, a 900-ton coast guard ship, with its own stories to tell.
Reykjavík Maritime Museum is part of Reykjavík City Museum – one museum in five unique places.
Guided tours of the ship: 13:00, 14:00 & 15:00. Photo: Borgarsögusafn Reykjavíkur
