A really fun video museum covering various topics like Icelandic Music, fisherman, landscape, history and recent events Each feature lasts 3 – 4 minutes and covers one topic. All features have matching show times, so you have about twenty seconds to walk to another cinema screen with another fascinating topic. There is no distinct order and if you watch all our features you will spend about an hour and a half in the museum which, fittingly, is housed in one of Reykjavik’s oldest cinemas. Open from 9 am to 5 pm Address: Austurbær, Snorrabraut 37, 105 Reykjavik.

This is the main Center for all busses in our area. But to go there you can either walk 15.minutes or take a bus number 3. near our house. Remember to ask for changing ticket ( skiptimiði). You can use the ticket for another bus or same bus. But the ticket is valid just for a period time ;-) If you want to go straight down town, take number 4 near our house, you do not have to switch .
