Víkin - Maritime Museum

Reykjavík Maritime Museum

The Museum is situated in Reykjavik’s picturesque active fishing harbor, only a 10 minute walk from the city center.  Enjoy the fantastic view of the boats, fishermen and birdlife before entering the museum.  

For centuries Icelanders depended heavily on fishing and the sea for survival, and as a result the country has a long and rich maritime history. In the Reykjavik Maritime Museum you can explore this history, including beautiful ship-models, realistic scenery as well as both dried and life fish!  

The magnificent Coast Guard Vessel Óðinn, who took part in all three cod wars, is a part of the museum, docked outside in the beautiful harbor. 

Guided tours of the ship are offered at these times:

  • 1 pm
  • 2 pm
  • 3 pm

Entrance to both museum and guard ship:

  • 1000 ISK for adults
  • Free for under 18 years

A wonderful place for a fun day out with family or friends!
